Old Trout lake

The lake has been run as a trout lake for the past 25 years with a samll number of carp being left to thier own devices over this time. Trout fishing has now stopped with the majority of trout being removed and approx 70 carp introduced (some 4 years ago) from between 12 and 23lb to boost the original stock , number of which are unknown.

The Trout lake is a 12 acre gravel pit dug in 1960's for gravel and sand extraction. There 14 swims consisting of a mixture of natural grass verges and purpose built dugouts. Parking is located on one side of the lake providing very close access to a number of swims and easy access to the rest.

Trial fishing has produced a number of original fish to 34-08 (there could well be bigger) plus stockies up to 30lb. I would estimate the avaerage weight being around 20lb which will quickly increase as these young fish start taking on high protein foods.
