Office Lake Fishery

Office Lake in Nottinghamshire, originally a gravel pit, was named due to its restricted access for management only.

It holds a rich history, including the discovery of a mammoth skeleton that became the company logo.

Despite being neglected for 20 years, plans are underway to restore its beauty, making it an ideal fishing spot with various fish species available.

About Office Lake Fishery

Office Lake in Nottinghamshire was created as a gravel pit in the 1950s and 1960s by the Hoveringham Gravel Company. They found a mammoth skeleton during the digging, which became the company logo. At first, only the management could use the lake, so it was called “Office Lake.” In 1973, it was recognized as the best restored gravel pit.

For the past 20 years, the lake has been ignored, but now there are plans to make it beautiful again. It’s a great place for fishing, with many different types of fish. The Wels European Catfish is a big species there, weighing more than 70 pounds. You can also find Pike, Eels, Perch, Rudd, Roach, and Carp weighing up to 25 pounds.

When you go to Office Lake, you can drive right up to your spot to fish, so you don’t have to carry your gear far. The swims are big enough for your tent too, so you’ll have plenty of space.

If you want to know more about fishing rules, how to get there, or what’s available, ask the people in charge of Office Lake.
