About Quarry Lake
At 3/4 of an acre and well stocked with a variety of fish up to 25lb, Quarry Lake is ideal for beginners who want to catch a lot of fish, or pleasure anglers who are looking for a productive day’s fishing. This lake includes carp, tench, roach, perch and catfish. Holding around 70 -80 catfish, this makes for a great lake to bag your first catfish. It is a natural lake with a 12 ft deep hole in the middle with a gravel bed, with depths of 8ft around the hole and then through to 1 to 2 ft by the edges. The bank is a combination of silt and stoney areas. It has a reed surround and is home to 11 spacious jetties. You can park right next to some of these jetties which makes it easy to get your equipment out, and perfect for any of our disabled anglers.
We ask that you use a 10lb Minimum breaking strain line and a landing net and unhooking net.
Fishing PricesAdult (Day Ticket 7am – 7pm) - £15 | Junior (Day Ticket 7am – 7pm) - £ 15
It is hard to recommend a particular fishing tactic as it is very heavily stocked and there are likely to be fish where-ever you cast. As far as bait goes, all good quality boilies will work and pellets and particles are also popular. The catfish respond well to Halibut pellets and luncheon meat but will take most baits. Also remember that the lakes are fished regularly and the angler before you may have put bait in an area so look for signs of feeding fish in your swim before you start baiting up an area that you’ve chosen as you could be competing with existing bait.
If you're looking for a fun days fishing then this is the lake to go for!
