Excellent fishery with the match lake being good enough for the all rounder fisherman and the speci lake for the experienced. Easily some double numbers in carps and and cats upto 70lbs!! Mixed lake is a good one as well with some cats in there as well. The brothers running couldn't be anymore helpful. Clean toilets and a newly installed bait shop with light refreshments. Been coming here for 2 years now.


A group of us fished the match lake recently after a five yr lay off. We'd heard and had been told good things about extra stocking of the lake so were expecting a good days fishing. Not so. No better then 5yrs earlier and we're pretty reasonable match fisherman. The wooden swims were unsafe and we fished between them on the bank. 3 other ”bivvy" boys had just fished 3 days down there and only had 3 carp in all that time. Certainly wont be rushing back. New cafe on site now but expensive.


Had a great days fishing there and would highly recommend if disabled just as I am as they let you drive to your swim on the match lake
