Site Fishing Log

Unlike most other fisheries we have a log book for the fishing which everyone is encouraged to fill in and make comments. This means you can see exactly how the fishery is performing on arrival and not be a recipent of the old phrase, “Oh! you should have been here last week it fished its head off, but this week it’s gone very quiet”.

Season Permits

We have an angling group of 20 members who are able to purchase annual permits to be able to fish all the lakes anytime, and also to night fish Mallard Lake.
The season permit cost is £200, we currently run a waiting list for any permits which become available.
You will undergo a rigorous vetting process prior to acceptance but we can assure you it will be worth it.

Mallard Lake

About The Lake

This lake was the first to be created on the site in 1990, transforming a potato field into the lovely complex we have today.
Mallard Lake is a 2 acre mature water with depths from 2 feet to 12 feet and is home to some great fish.
All the fish are English and have grown to their sizes in this lake with no artificial help, just a good strong strain of fish and plenty of natural food.
The lake is surrounded by trees and bushes with three islands to add that special feature.
This picturesque lake has many features from a good variation in depth, to weed and lily beds, overhanging trees and bushes, along with a varied array of wildlife.

With homegrown Common and Mirror Carp in excess of 20lb, Tench to over 4lb, and Wels Catfish to over 50lb this is certainly a lake to test any competent angler.
More recently, the majority of Carp caught are 8lb to 15lb; older, larger, wiser fish seem to be able to avoid capture. Can you sneak one out and get it to the landing net?
Limited season permits are available. To get on the waiting list you will undergo a detailed reference process.

Floater fishing on Mallard Lake is restricted

You are permitted to use surface baits from 16th June to 31st December only. You may only catch one fish per session using this method

Heron Pond

About The Lake

Heron Pool is a small purpose built fishery, originaly a final growing-on pond is now a super little water. It is approximately 3/4 acre in size and is stocked with some superb Carp, Tench and Bream. You really will enjoy fishing it.

With seven swims (three double platforms) on the water the fishery is never crowded with anglers.

The fishery is the focal point of our holiday lodges, Seasonal pitches and C&CC CL’.
Our guests enjoy the a chance to fish during their stay, or just relax with the view over water, there is something about taking it easy by the waterside and just watching the wildlife about their business.

The stock is a mixture of

Carp to 15lb

Tench to 4lb

Bream to 4lb

And a few Wels Catfish to 14lb

Kingfisher Pond

About The Lake

The youngest fishery on the complex is ‘Kingfisher Pond, which has been created to add to the variety of fishing on the site.

Kingfisher Pond is approximately 1/2 acre with depths to 6 feet, and stocked with Tench, Bream, Roach, Rudd, and Crucian Carp. This year we have removed all the Carp and joined the Environment Agencies reintroduction of Crucian Carp scheme. A lovely small fishery with three islands makes this a superb and very interesting little water.
Weed and lilies, nooks and crannies this is a wonderful little fishery for you to practise your ‘watercraft’.
