Exact numbers of carp are unknown but Theale 2 is estimated to hold 300 - 400 carp of various strains stocked under Cemex and a number of ghosts and several koi as a result of past flooding. Average weights are increasing slowly year on year with large numbers of 'twenties' present and over 15 different 'thirties' reported. The recent lake record is a mirror of 43lb; the largest reported common is 27lb. The 'fourty' and some of the 'thirties' are featured and for more T2 'twenties' click HERE.
Not everyone, but some of those anglers who have got to know it well regard T2 as something of a 'runs' water with fish being caught all year round and with multiple catches the norm.
