The two lakes are spring fed and cover an area of approximately 6 acres. While the lakes are mostly of medium depth, there are areas of deep water at the dam end of the lower lake.
Regulars tend to favour floating lines with small imitative pattern, which will produce fish throughout the season. Pheasant Tail and Sedge patterns are all very effective. Lures also work well and there is ample scope for the dry fly enthusiast. The lakes are regularly stocked, normally fortnightly depending on the preceding week’s catch rates, with rainbows with a minimum weight of 1LB 4oz, with a sprinkling of larger fish to double figures. The record rainbow tipped the scales at 12LB 4oz, the biggest brown 10LB and the largest 4 fish bag being 25LB 4oz
Non-members always welcome to fish on a day ticket – Just £25 for a 4 fish limit (NO Catch & Release.) available at the lakes.
The merry month of May 2018 produced these stunners. 7lb 4oz Blue, 9lb 14oz Brown and 11lb 1oz Rainbow.
