We have 14 day pegs, giving each angler a nice stretch of water in their swim and allowing up to a maximum of three rods per angler. Up to two rods £10.00 Three rods £15.00.

We operate our fishing lake between the times of 8:00am and 8:00pm, with 30 minutes before and after the time for anglers to arrive, setup and time for angler to bring their rods in. Swims must be booked prior to arrival – https://swimbooker.com/fishery/11342

Tips for fishing our coarse lake

If you are heading over for the day or camping on site, you may want to know some tips regarding the lake and how the carp feed during the day. Below you’ll find our Fishery Manager, Tom, telling you everything you need to know to ensure a high catch rate for when you visit.

“The carp in the lake are always on the move, they move through the margins during the day and most anglers that I meet on the lake are always fishing out in the open. Feeding those margins up with some pellet and sweetcorn can really change your catch amount. I’m always recommending anglers to have one rod in the margins about 1 rod length out into the ‘Drop Off’ because they really do circle around the lake all day.

I want to make sure that when you are visiting the lake, you have all the knowledge which I have accumulated from fishing the lake since opening back up as a carp fishery back in 2020.

Bright Wafters pink or yellow, House Boilie 12mm or 16mm

Small PVA Bags with house pellet 2/3mm and boilie crumb filled with Garlic goo…
4-inch hair rigs with a stick of PVA mesh filled with pellets.

Those are my choices when fishing the lake and it always produces a lot of fish on the bank.

Using our bait in the shop is highly recommended: Mostly our Boilie which is iD3 – Robin Red and Crab…

When you can find the spots on the lake, and there are plenty of areas in each swim, get plenty of bait out on your spot to get them feeding, I start by putting out a solid bag with 2-4 spombs of pellet and corn this time of year. Garlic is there ultimate favourite right now”

Don’t be shy with your feed as this will produce you bites all day and attract those bigger carp to your spot.
