Canal was built in 2007, is 15 metres wide and built with the pole angler in mind. It has 20 purpose built swims made from sleepers 8ft x 5ft. For ease, there is a built in pole roller for every peg.
The swims have an inside line and a far bank with a deeper area down the center. The swims have rushes and lilies on the far bank and down the inside. The lake was stocked with the match angler in mind with various Carp and Tench to 1½ lbs with a few larger fish. The fish have been growing well. The average size now is 6lbs and the biggest is over 20 lbs.
Canal has Carp: – Common, Mirror and Ghosties as well as Skimmers, Bream , Tench, Rudd , Roach and Perch to 3½ lb. A nice mixed fishery ideal for club booking and open matches.
The fishery supplies nets on all of our lakes, they are slightly different on canal as the keep nets are longer and the landing nets are bigger.
The lake is between 4ft 6” to 6ft deep.
We supply landing nets when fishing on this lake, also if your in a match we will supply keep nets and weigh slings.
The match lake is available for club bookings, as well as holding regular open matches.
