All About Our Waters & Where We Fish


Airey's Pond

We have a major project ongoing to create a new silver fish pond –Airey`s Pond at the eastern end of the lake. The depth will be 4-6 feet in most places. The aim of the project is to improve the fishery for roach, bream and tench and enhance the ecological environment for both wildlife and anglers.
