The Willows is the specimen lake at The Oaks Lakes complex. The lake is approximately 7 feet deep with a central island. There are Grass Carp to 25lb, Ghost carp to 26lb and Common/Mirror Carp to 28lb. In 2003, The Willows lake was extended and more islands were added allowing easier fishing for pleasure anglers. The lake also holds Roach, Bream, Tench, Perch, Ide and Barbel. The Willows lake can accommodate 30 anglers. Floating baits can be fished on The Willows Lake. Popular methods are single hook baits during the colder months i.e. corn, maggot clips or boilies. In Spring fish pellets or boilies with small PVA bags. In Summer pellets and boilies with large PVA bags or spodding works well. It is also worth trying a floating dog biscuit or large floating pellet for the carp off the top. Full cubes of Cat meat or luncheon meat also work on this lake. Boilies are used by the majority of the specimen anglers.
