Two established lakes offering plenty of features. Floating baits are allowed on Kingfisher.


Kingfisher Lake
This is the largest of the 2 lakes which has 33 pegs and is well established, offering plenty of features including an island to the left of the lake and a sunken island to the right, with plenty of Reed cover all round the lake.
This lake holds a wide range of species including: common & mirror carp to 26lb+; Ghost carp, grass carp, Tench, chubb, barbel, perch, bream, skimmers, roach, Rudd, golden Rudd, crucian carp and even eels.
It does offer plenty for all anglers if you just want to catch some fish or whether you are after that bigger carp.
With each day being different from the next it keeps you on your toes and doesn't get predictable.
The larger of the carp are very smart and you have to out whit them!
Making them more fun to catch.
With open water swims,island swims and reed lined margins not to mention the sunken island there is a peg to suit any method pole,waggler or feeder.
Also allowed on this lake only is floating baits that can produce lots of carp later in the day.

Woodpecker Pool
This pool has 20 pegs and is very even all round once again this pool offers a wide selection of species including common carp, ghost carp, mirror carp, barble, tench and golden tench, skimmers, roach, rudd, blue and golden orfe, golden rudd, bream, crucian carp, koi carp, grass carp, ide and even he odd goldfish a lovely selection of some of the prettier species. The carp only go to low doubles in this pool and there isn’t a large quanity.

This pool is great for catching plenty of fish with the added bonus of a bigger carp to be hooked.

Favered meathods on this lake is firstly the pole,as there are not to many large fish in this lake 8,10 or 12 elastic is better for sport,9 to 13 meters out on the bottom will see bites all day but with regular feeding the fish will come shallow lots of carp and barble will be the main biters (once you've feed through the rudd).

For lots of lovely golden & green tench a closer in attack is recomended fishing close to the margins or even under your feet will so the float going under all day but also be prepered for the carp to turn up as well as the hard fighting barble.

Of cause the waggler will catch plenty of fish from all these areas too with soft pellets,corn and meat being the better summer baits - maggots, casters & worms also have there day but the hungry rudd and roach will take some perserverance.

Not to forget the swim feeders that will take lots of fish when thay are feeding in the middle of the lake, groundbait,maggot or pellet feeder all taking there share of the fish.

No floating baits or bread to be used in this pool and only 1 rod allowed.

There are different rules in this lake please check before fishing.

10 out of 10 fishery. Don't be put off with the rules. Endless catching all day, I caught barbel, tench, golden tench, bream and about every type of carp going. Maggot worked well over a bed of casters on the pole. Keep feeding bait, caster, corn and feed pellet throughout out the session


Great days fishing
