Our smaller of the two lakes, 5 acres, is used for cat fishing although there are still some in the big lake so your chance of hooking a cat while carp fishing is still there. Due to popular demand we have decided do allow people to fish for the carp as well as catfish, obviously using the appropriate end tackle for each species. For those of you waiting just to catch good catfish with the specialised tackle this is a must, with many catfish being caught to over 100lb.
Stock is always being added to this, as each time a catfish over 20lb is caught on the big lake, it will be transferred to the small lake. We allow minimum of two anglers fishing as a pair and maximum of four anglers fishing as two pairs. There are two double swims, each with a ramp to land the fish.
Recommended ways of fishing
We recommend large pellets and live bait, both these items should be ordered when booking your place as bringing pellet or live bait onto site is forbidden.
We established some rules for this lake to make it all easier for everybody -
- Minimum 20lb mono
- Minimum 35lb braid
- Single hook rigs only
- For live bait hook size a maximum of 4/0 and for pellet fishing a maximum size of 2
A stock of all the relevant end tackle for catching catfish will be available to purchase on site if you should forget anything.
For further information on price and booking, please ring Ruth at Yateley Angling on 01252 861955. For rules and rigs, please feel free to ring us in France and ask for Ben. You can also book to fish this lake on a daily basis for an additional charge.
