Three picturesque fishing lakes noted for Carp, Bream, Roach, Tench, Perch and Rudd fishing.
The Top Lake
The top lake, (also known as the Doughnut due to it being circular with an island) is an 18 peg lake. Carp here average around 8lb but don’t be surprised to catch them over 10lb, Barbel are regularly being caught now and are gaining weight since their introduction a few years ago. There are plenty of skimmers with lots of silvers. Matches often produce weights over 100 lb.
The Long Lake
Is an 11 peg lake being a canal shape with fishing only available from one side of the lake. Carp average around 6lb, Barbel are regularly being caught, as are a variety of silver fish of varying sizes. This lake is particularly good for small matches, batch bookings, children and beginners of all ages.
The Horns Dam
This 4 acre, 40 peg water accommodates larger matches and has well spaced pegs for carp fishing. The Horns Dam is very popular with the carp angler, pleasure fisherman and match angler. The historic lake throws out plenty of surprises with carp over 25lb, bream over 10 lb and tench over 6 lb, with a good head of roach, rudd, chub and specimen perch.
