Description

Set in the stunning Devon countryside, Millhayes Fishery is an idyllic and relaxing angling environment. Established for over 20 years and set in the small village of Kentisbeare, the fishery consists of two distinctly mature lakes set in an area of mature countryside. No longer open to day tickets or the public.

Details

The main Lake of 2 acres is well stocked with Carp to approx. 30lbs, Tench to 8lbs and Roach and Rudd to almost 2lbs. Alongside is a smaller lake (0.25 acre) which is stocked with Crucian Carp and Bream. The lakes are continuously fed with spring water from the Blackdown Hills, keeping the fish in excellent condition.

The main lake is where most anglers choose to fish, Best methods for this lake are pellet fished on the pole or just plain old maggots, do not neglect the margins as this is often where the bigger fish can be found. A net of 100lbs is not uncommon on this lake and bites will be plentiful, if your swim goes quiet then it probably means the larger carp have moved in and you may be in for a surprise. Try floating baits in the summer evenings as the sun goes down the carp go mad for it!

Do not forget to try out the smaller lake it holds some very nice crucian carp and some cracking Roach and Rudd and also a few nice double figure carp....Go on give it a try what have you got to lose?

Fishing is allowed from dusk till dawn. Please note that the fishery is closed in January and February each year to give the fish a well deserved rest.
