ABOUT LAURENTIA LAKE
the unspoilt beauty of the Cradle of Human Kind on an
internationally famous Rose and Peach farm, lies Laurentia
Specimen Angling Lake.
Many well known, experienced Specimen Anglers visit our lake
on a regular basis to outwit our hard fighting Common and
Mirror Carp which were introduced back in the 1950’s and
have since grown to well over 8 – 16 kg’s in weight.
Braai (barbecue) facilities are placed at each of our seven
swims, with toilets and showers conveniently situated
nearby. The general ambience around the lake is one of total
peace and quiet. Natural waterfowl, otter and fish eagle can
be seen regularly. At night the howl of jackals can be
heard, so too the roar of lions from the nearby Lion Park
and the nocturnal sugar cane mammals and rabbits, which pass
close to anglers’ fishing spots.
The lake was originally built to irrigate the existing rose
and peach orchards. It has a hard gravel bottom in certain
areas as well as silt beds in the deeper areas. Carp of
between 8 - 16 kg’s are regularly caught as well as Black
Bass of between 2 – 4 kg’s.
Rules around the lake are strict, as our fish care and safety
standards are very high. These are primarily to protect and
ensure the longevity and survival of the resident fish, as
well as that of the sport itself.
NO conventional angling methods are allowed at all.
Bookings are compulsory and essential, as swims are very
quickly filled by Specimen Anglers each weekend. Anglers and
visitors who want to come and have a look, must phone first
to arrange a visit. NO ONE is allowed to enter the lake area
without permission or a booking.
