INFORMATION ABOUT OUR LAKES
The Main Lake
The main lake is fed by streams which come down from the nearby hills and ranges in depth from the shallows to near 14 feet at the centre of the main body of the lake. There are many minor inlets from the surrounding hills and three main inlets, all of which become highly oxygenated and bountiful during the rain.

In essence, it is a ‘Square’ shaped lake and the fish tend to hug the 6′ deep central trenches or the reeds by the banks. The margins vary from 2′ to 4′. The fish also tend to go where the wind blows the abundant natural food. Overnight fishing is also allowed on this lake provided there are no angling matches booked.
This lake is ideal for Angling Club Matches.
If you would like to book a club match please call our office direct on 01254 822208.
Our fly lake is home to five different species of Trout – Rainbow, Blue, Brown, Tiger and Golden from 1lb to double figures. This 18 peg lake has a small offset island and may be fished on a sporting or game ticket. Terrestrials blow off the surrounding farmland and the two streams feeding the lake bring in natural food and small natural Brown trout. Most weeks we also stock with a handful of bigger Rainbows. Ticket tarrifs are flexible to cater for anglers who just want a couple of hours fishing after a stressful day at work to those who want nine hours of uninterrupted sport. Many anglers report bags of double figures. Natural flies present include Damsels, Sedges, Buzzers and Bloodworm. All anglers are asked to document their returns in the office and advised to wear hats and sunglasses/safety glasses whilst fishing. Anglers aged 15 or under must be supervised by an adult.
