The Main Lake
This 3 acre lake was built in 1996. It contains Carp to 25lbs, Roach, Rudd, Tench, Bream & Gudgeon. The lake fishes well all year round and has 28 pegs. The deepest part is 4 metres at the centre of the lake. The most popular lake of the complex you need to be at fisheries early to get a peg. Match bookings taken year round Sunday bookings only.

Frog Hall Lake
The Frog Hall has been a lake for over 100 years. It can accommodate 10 anglers. It is heavily stocked with Carp up to 27 lbs, Roach, Rudd, Perch and also has some Tench. Depth is around 3 metres in the middle, it is sheltered and in the far corner of the farm. Parking is at the side of the lake.

Emily's Lake
Emily’s lakes was built in 2004 and opened in 2005. Heavily stocked with Carp this has become a very popular day fishing and match fishing lake. Fish are now weighing up to 8lbs and giving anticipated match weights of 100+lbs during summer months. The lake has 37 pegs and parking, when dry, is behind each peg, or on the car park, which is nearby.

Designed as a canal style lake, and often referred to as a Snake lake, this offers a great alternative to the Main Lake and Frog Hall. Match bookings taken for any day, except Mondays.

Oscar's Lake
Oscar’s lakes was also built in 2004 and opened in 2005. Heavily stocked with Carp this lake is smaller with only 31 pegs. Weights recorded in summer 2006 were regularly between 50—100lbs during 6 hour matches. Both lakes run to a depth of 3m in the middle with a 2:1 gradient banking. Match bookings taken for any day, except Mondays.

Looks a good place, nice looking lakes. West Yorkshire, not North Yorkshire.


Great day out on the 27.3.13 ! Couldn't stop catching fish with a mixed bag too, get there early for a nice peg

Been a few times now and caught a couple of carp up to about 4lb, seen some nice 10lb carp out. These are from the small Emily's lake, the carp are said to go up to mid 20's in frog lake.


Went on 6/7/13 on froghall lake. Trying to get to the carp at the bottom. But didn't have a chance with the roach seems like there's millions in there. So give up and fished on top and the carp had a chance. Turned out to be good day.


Great fisheries. Good quality fish. Loads of Carp in the main lake


Lots of anglers without using unhooking mats👎


To all that fish at Birkwood you all say how nice the fish are, if you want them to stay that way use a mat!!! Under £10 for a basic one. No excuses.


This place is my all time favourite fishery and I've been to plenty! I usually fish Emily's lake and always have an amazing day. Main lake is my favourite but there's usually a match in when I go!


Great venue. love the place.
