WADMILL LAKE A great venue - a personal favourite. First time fishing Wadmill lake. Very hard throughout the day. Boilies and pellet on the hair did nothing, I caught 2 carp at 6:30pm on a single piece of corn with a little and often scattering of 3mm pellet and the same with pork meat from Lidl. Throughout the day I used plenty of stick mix but no joy. I think on this lake, keep it simple and natural. Next time it's corn mean and maggots for me. Unfortunately I lost 2 runs, my hook link snapped, I am told that it could be a large pike biting through the braid. Most people were catching on the far side of the lake in the margins, one lucky chap even got a 22lb ghostie. PARK LAKE if you want to catch! Go here! A couple I spoke to gave up after catching 50 between them! A good lake to keep you busy all around 5 lb Ish. Enjoy. This venue would get a 5 if they built a toilet and shower block in my opinion.

Brilliant fishery c


Did Wadmill for a night fish on a cold October with Minty! Had 7 fish overall, lost a few. Had 2xPike to 7.5lb, 2xCommon to 10.5lb and 3xMirror up to 9lb! Simple tactics did well, simple rigs with halibut pellets and biggest Pike on whole Mackerel.
