It has been a while since our last update.
A combination of work and family commitments have kept me very busy!
The lake has been fishing incredibly well so far this year.
Many anglers have broken their personal bests, some anglers have caught large numbers of fish, but most importantly, everyone has enjoyed themselves – that’s what it is all about.
We have had many emails of appreciation back from our customers so far this year, very much appreciated.
Il do a full and detailed update before the weekend.
Please note that on Sunday we wil not be opening the gates until 10am.
The lake is currently fishing very well despite the high water, with a mixture of patterns working.
Please call or email for more information on tactics that are working well.
Please note that Sunday 30th December, we will be open from 10am, slightly later than usual
The Trout fishing seasons for 2013 will run from

As the water levels have now slightly dropped, we are back open for business.
A recent stocking saw the introduction of slightly larger fish, mostly in the 3-5lb range.
They are extremely hard fishting in the cold water, so please ensure you are rigged up accordingly.
Due to the currently very high water levels, we will be closed Sunday 25th November for safety reasons. I will update this page if we will be closed any longer.
The summer season has started exceptionally well.
High water levels, unsettled weather and good angling have all contributed to a great start to this years summer carp fishing.
A very noticable catch is the fish pictured above. It is one of our younger fish, and growing steadily, now over 31lb. Well done on the capture Simon.
The fish have been fallling for a variety of tactics, b ut stalking in the edge is proving the most productive.
The trout fishing season has now come to an end until October.
It has been very hard going for the last few weeks, the stock levels are high but the catch returns have been very low, as has footfall.
The summer carp fishing period is now here, and I’m sure they will play ball a little more. The carp have been moving well and are extremely active.
I will update the news section and our social media pages reguarly with catch reports and goings on at the fishery.
The lake has been fairly quiet, angler wise, for the last couple of weeks, which is sad to see at this beautiful time of year.
The long grass has encouraged a wealth of flylife to the waters edge, and the fish are still very active.
Due to the very warm water though, the fishing has been harder, but a few anglers have still been doing well.
Surface tactics have been proving the most succesfull.
As always in warmer conditions, we ask you to take extra care if releasing fish.
Please note that the lake will be closed for Trout fishing from dusk on Sat 30th June and will re-open Sat 13th October.
During this time the lake is booked out on an exclusive use basis, so access will not be available.
