Higher Kingcombe Lodge 9.5 out of 10 based on 2 ratings. 2 user reviews.
I fish this lake quite alot and its very productive compared to other lake around Dorset. The biggest carp ive landed was a 17lb 7 common and 18lb mirror from the old Dorchester specimen lake i believe there are 20,s plus in there and have hooked into some big carp but they got away. there are loads of feature to fish to and the the other specimen lake holds 2 big carp in there which have still to be caught to see there weight i was told last year it weighed in at 26lb ghost and mirror at 25lb. other than that these lakes are very good value for money and you will leaving happy ive never blanked since fishing these lakes.

Great mix of lakes for the coarse and carp angler. The bottom two contain the biggest of the carp. There are two big ghosties in the smaller of the bottom lakes, both 20lb+. I had the linear at 21lb 14oz but think it's done 25ish before. I've seen the other ghost as high as 24. There's a good handful more 20's on top of these and lot's of backup doubles. The bigger lake is more of a runs water with the average stamp at 8-10lb. There are upper doubles at least in there though. Overall great place. Clearish water in all the ponds. Fantastic surface fishing venue.
