The main lake at Mill Farm Fishery was originally an old sand and gravel pit that filled up with water when a spring was disturbed in the bottom. Over the years it has been stocked with Tench, Bream, Roach, Mirror Carp, Leather Carp, Crucian Carp, Grass Carp and Chub. The lake has become very popular with anglers from all over the Midlands and from farther afield. The lake is stocked regularly and good sized fish including carp of 10 – 20lbs are abundant.
This lake is also stocked with Tench, Roach, Ide, Bream, Mirror Carp, Ghost Carp and Crucian Carp. The fish are all well established and on Match days in the Summer, large nets of fish are common.
Mill Farm Fishery also has a third pool suitable for smaller matches with 10 – 12 pegs available. This can also be fished by pleasure anglers.
Various baits are popular at Mill Farm but please do NOT use peas, beans, nuts, tiger nuts and similar. Ground bait is allowed if used in a feeder with maggots or on ‘the method’ but must not be thrown in the water in any amount. Barbless hooks must be used at all times.
Cars must be parked in car parks provided and not on the banks at any time. The Baker family try and keep the fishery clean and tidy at all times and would appreciate cooperation from anglers to help by taking their packets, bottles and tins and discarded line home with them to ensure that fish, birds, ducks and other wildlife are not in danger by being trapped, etc.
The fishery is easily accessible from M1, M6 and M69 and is situated ½ a mile from the village of Gilmorton on the road to Peatling Parva signposted as Mill Lane opposite the car park to the Crown Inn.
