This lake has 31 swims - 8 of these are on a central island accessed by a footbridge. There are six other islands plus many other features giving each swim an individual feel.
Some major work was carried out to remove the bulrushes from the main part of the lake and create two new islands at the beginning of April 2018.
The banks of the Match Lake are steep creating a good depth of water tight to the features.
The Match Lake is planted with trees, native shrubs, bullrushes, irises and lily pads.
The lake is heavily stocked with a mixture of carp - common (to 10lb), mirror (to 10lb), grass, koi, crucean; tench (to 5lb); golden tench (to 3lb); bream (to 5lb); skimmer bream; roach (to 1.5lb); rudd; golden orfe; chub; perch.
This lake is best known for its crucians and fantailed crucians along with silver fish.
A paddle aerator is used in this lake to keep it open and fishable during even the coldest frosts in winter.
The current pleasure bag record on this lake is held by John Harrison with a bag of 138lb. The record was previously held by Mike Smith of Warmley with 135lb.
The match record is held by Tom Thick with a brilliant 115lb 4oz from peg 24 in a six hour match.

"Bullocks Farm Match Lake is in my opinion the best Crucian Carp match venue in the South West. The venue never ceases to amaze me, thirty inches deep with plenty of quality Roach, Skimmers and Crucians (if you can catch them) and of course Carp to double figures." Mike Nicholls - Silver Fox Angling blogspot
