The syndicate is a "members only" water (limited member guest tickets are available by prior agreement) and no fishing is available to the general public. There is an abundance of bushes and trees around the lake itself which provide prolific insect life throughout the season. Depths vary but a highlight is a deep channel which provides cooler water in the summer months. Regular stockings are made consisting of rainbow & brown trout, creating a unique fishing facility in this area. The Fishery has its own car park, returns hut and several small boats for members use if fishing afloat is desirable. Fishing platforms are well established around the lake and members can enjoy 12 months “all year” fishing under a season subscription, with no restriction on the number of visits they can make in a season.
