The Hayes Lake is our newest lake on the complex & will be opening in November 2021 for winter ticket holders alone & Spring 2022 for general bookings. 

2022 Lake exclusive bookings available from September 2021 & individual peg bookings from December 1st 2021 for April onwards. 

The lake is stocked with 185 stunning mirrors & commons with an average weight of 25/26lb when open & is 6.2 acres in size. 

The fish stocked into The Hayes lake are young & full of potential for the future & have been supplied by John at Fishers pond fishery & Steve at White water fisheries. 

With this lake being left to settle for a year & stock fed daily it should produce some fantastic average weights immediately once opened. 

The margins & island are reed lined with a consistent depth of 7.5/8ft covering the lake. 
The bottom is clay, silt, hard gravel & each swim has plenty of underwater features to fish too.

It has one large island that is 65 meters long & will be fishable from various swims. 
We have also build 5 large gravel bars with over 200 tonnes forming these so they will be major feeding areas once opened. 

The lake has 4 x single swims & 3 x double swims that can be pre-booked. 

Prices will be £32.50 per 24hrs per angler with a minimum of 48hrs at weekends. 

Lake exclusive price £325 per 24hrs with a minimum of 48hrs at weekends.
