The two acre Back Lake has a phenomenal stock of carp introduced as tiny fingerlings back in 1994. Dark heavily scaled mirrors, chunky commons, ghosties and koi make up a stock of wonderfully characterful fish.  There are at least 180 resident carp. Seventy-four are over 20lb, twenty-two over 25lb and three over 30lb.  Current lake record is 34lb.  Check out the photo album featuring all of the 20lb+ carp on the East Delph Facebook group. The Back Lake has an eight-angler limit guaranteeing a generous amount of water to target.
