Topmoor lake (the snake) is 2 inner-connecting triangular shaped canals, up to 13 metres wide with 90 swims, all platformed.

So heavily fished that most methods/bait will work. On the lakes fish either tight to the margins or close to the Islands; corner swims good. On 'The Snake' best as tight to the far bank as possible, with hot swims often being near the inter-connections of the 2 canals. Meat, Pellet, Maggot, Corn, Worm all good and don't forget to try bread and floating crust. Matches are regularly won with over 100lbs, with the match record at nearly 200lbs, so plenty of fish for all.

Great match venue loads water to choose from so always a free peg to fish at weekends


Fished these lakes many times and great for novice and experienced anglers alike. Excellent tackle shop on site. Class venue


Definitely go again, in total I saw about 6 species pulled from the lake. All healthy top quality fish. I had a beautiful tench and a decent sized perch among others. Top job.



Only really fished the snake lake, use red maggots if silver fish is your thing, meat and corn where the inner and outer canals connect for carp
