Fishing on our lakes is from 1st March until 31st October
Lily lake is just over 1.6 acres & has been established for over 100 years. It was originally excavated for gravel which was used to construct local railway embankments. It was stocked as a
fishery in the early 60's by the then owner. The lake was dredged & re-stocked the lake with a mix of beautiful Mirror Carp and Common Carp. The lake has been stocked again with a
mix of Common Carp, Scaley Mirror Carp and mixed Coarse Fish Species. These Scaley Carp are absolutely beautiful. Lily Lake is a fun Carp lake with many upper doubles & a few into the twenties.
The largest fish caught to date is a specimen of 26lb 11oz so this lake is suitable for the serious Carp Fishermen.
Tench and Bream run to 6lbs together with many Roach, Perch and Silver Fish Species make this lake also a good coarse fishing lake.
Depths vary between 3ft & 8ft & every peg has a wealth of features to target. The tree lined margins & lily beds ensure a relaxing days fishing or watching the varied wildlife.
Willow Lake is just over 1.4 acres and is densely stocked with a mix of Coarse fish & Carp. It was formed following gravel extraction & was stocked with fish over 50 years ago. Tree lined margins and lily beds provide a natural environment for the fish & the abundant wildlife. The carp weigh between 3lb & 15lb with Tench to 9lb, Bream to 9lb & a good head of Crucian, Roach, Perch & Chub which provide hours of quality fishing. Depths vary between 2ft to 7ft & the bottom is predominantly clear of any weed. This Lake has been managed over the last eight years to increase the average weight of the fish stocks. This management results in quality of catch rather than simply number of fish caught.
This Scaley Mirror Carp is just one of 87 good sized Carp introduced during February 2011. These fish vary in size from 8lbs to 20lbs and they are all as beautiful as this one. A mix of Common Carp and Mirror Carp will ensure a good days sport for all. Please see our gallery page for more pictures of our fish stocks.
