Our Vincent’s and Jordan’s Lakes were created in 2002 and are close to the River Hiz, which also forms part of the anglers choice for fishing. Jordan’s Lake covers 4.9 acres with two central islands. Predominantly stocked with Carp (to 25-30lbs) and Tench (to 5lbs), the lake has 21 single and 5 double swims including 1 disabled. The best catch to date is 190lbs in a day session.
Vincent’s Lake covers 1.55 acres with several interesting corners. Stocked with all natural species - Rudd, Roach, Bream, Gudgeon, Crucian, Common and Mirror Carp to 15lbs. The lake has 8 single (including disabled) and 8 double swims. The best catch to date 101lbs of fish in a 4-hour match session.
The River Hiz is 1067 metres of river bank with interesting shallow and deep stretches of water. Not heavily fished but has Roach, Chubb, Perch (to 2.5lbs) and Pike to 12lbs (caught). A real challenge to the pioneering river angler. In England and Wales the close season for coarse fish (including pike) is between March15th and 15th June inclusive.
This is a canal lake with sixteen swims specifically designed for less-abled anglers requiring easy walking or wheelchair access and ideal for pole, rod or ‘short’ ledger fishing. Each swim has a double platform with safety rails and disabled WC and wet room (in Hayward’s Amenity Block) within 40 metres of the furthest swim. The lake is stocked with native species, crucian, chubb, rudd, roach, bream, gudgeon and perch ranging from annual spawning up to 10lb.
Another ‘canal’ lake of nine double platforms specifically designed with the younger angler in mind, who may require training or supervision. Parking is close by for supervisors. The lake is stocked as Roger’s Lake.
