Lake Alfarofia

Located close to the Portuguese/Spanish border near Badajoz is the small carp fishing paradise called lake Alfarofia. It is a 15-acre lake in a 103-acre private estate, first created in 1992 to provide water for rice farming.

It features an average depth of about 4m/13ft with the deepest parts being 6ft/19ft.

It was stocked with 1500 mirror carp, which 28 years later have now become massive. Even though it was opened to the public back in 2007, it has only recently come to the attention of the carp fishing elite due to the size and quality of its fish.

Since most of its carp are yet to be hooked, they are wild and feisty. The lake enjoys the most conducive water conditions for fish, with the water getting completely renewed every year thanks to irrigation.

It also has plenty of weeds, crayfish, and other carp delicacies that ensure carp reach their full potential.

The carp record for lake Alfarofia so far is 52lb/23.5kg, but you are invited to break it. The big fish are still waiting for their match down there.
