All About Our Waters & Where We Fish

Brookfoot Lake

Brookfoot Lake

Our main fishery is Brookfoot Lake. A 3 acre, mixed coarse fishery; it is gaining a reputation as a specimen water-rewarding those who are willing and able to put in time and effort to master its vagaries. The lake occasionally attracts some species of birds not usually found on inland waters. A few exotic wildfowl have taken up residence in the area making a welcome diversion to the many indigenous species such as kingfisher, coot, moorhen and the ubiquitous mallard. Close co-operation has been maintained between the club and local Environment Agency fisheries officials in order to maximise the benefit to members.

An overflow has now been constructed near the car park end of the lake and will prevent the perennial flooding that has marred access to fishing in the past. (If you see an Ark being built in the car park, then you can worry).

The access path around the lake on the southern bank has been considerably improved. Parking is available for 6 Blue Badge holders adjacent to Tony Rileys pond, other access may be granted by Chris and/or Sean in the Red Door cabin,
