Created in 2005 by removing the last two lanes of Match Lake, the new Elliott Lake is a small 30-peg water with a central island which is now fully stocked with a good variety of species making it a good choice for those with children or anglers wanting to catch a lot of fish.
In 2009 several double figure carp to 12lbs 8oz were caught, mostly commons, together with a decent number of tench to just over 5lbs, perch and bream to over 3lbs and roach to 2lbs. The water also holds some lovely crucian carp and crucian crosses which run to a good 3lbs.
Elliott has banks which slope down to a four feet deep flat bottom with a one-foot deep shelf around the cigar shaped central island.
Although it is probably best fished on pole or waggler, some anglers prefer to fish the feeder towards the island. Because it is well stocked, all the usual baits work well with maggots, sweetcorn, meat baits and soft hooker pellets proving particularly effective when fished over a bed of feeder pellets or groundbait
