Fan Lodge is two and a half acres in size and ranges from 6 feet and two feet in depth with over 40 pegs. Night fishing is allowed on Fan Lodge. But there is a limit on the number allowed and have to be applied for. As this water is also a match water night anglers will not be able to fish the pegs allocated for a match the night before.
