The Match Lake

The Fishery

 January 2007 the Match Pool and Specimen Pool were joined to create a new 65 peg Match Lake. This new lake covers an approximate area of 5 acres and has 3 islands. The new lake has been intensively stocked with F1's, but none of the existing stock from either pool has been removed. This lake now creates a venue for match, specimen and pleasure anglers, which caters for all types of angling methods. Pole, feeder and waggler.



The floods of summer 2007 devastated the lake, both the banking and stocking were hit. Extensive work has been carried out to mend, replace and renew damaged banking and pegs. All pegs are now available and safe. During 2009 extensive stocking took place to bring the lake to a very high standard for match fishing. Regular 65 peg open matches now take place.

In preparation for the open matches the lakes own car park has been extended to hold 70 cars.
