I was busy on Wednesday and couldn’t make the White Acres mid week match, by Sunday I was chomping at
There are four spring-fed coarse fishing lakes here, all have depths to around 6ft and are well stocked with Mirror and Common Carp, Bream, Silver and Green Tench, Golden Rudd and Golden Orfe.
The first lake you will reach when approaching from the road is mainly a Tench pond with a few Skimmer Bream.
The next two lakes, one of which has an island, hold mainly Carp with some well into double figures. These two ponds also hold a mixture of Bream and Tench.
The larger top pond also holds mainly Carp, but also has a selection of Golden Rudd and Golden Orfe.
The four lakes total 1 1/2 acres of water and are set in a gently sloping valley, just 500 yards away from the house. The lakes are open all year round (from dawn until dusk), fishing is free to guests staying or day tickets can be purchased for anglers who live in the locality. There is parking available on a hard track which is adjacent to the lakes and a toilet is onsite. A lake can be reserved for match fishing, but no night fishing is allowed.
