The main Lake is 100 years old and set amongst mature trees and boasts an excellent stock of Common Carp and Mirror Carp up to 25lb... and beyond. and many other species of coarse fish including Bream, Roach, Perch and lots of Pike, some that weigh in at 26lb plus. This is for the angler who loves a challenge! Can you outwit some of the most knowledgeable Wild Carp you will ever get to catch? This is by no means easy fishing, (like a commercial fishery overstocked with poor conditioned fish).This is a natural lake that will provide you with some of the best conditioned fish you will ever catch..... If you can! Some of these fish are so knowledgable that they have only been caught a few times!! Many anglers who have caught these prime fish have been coming to Willow Waters Fishery for over 20 years and are still learning our water. You will not find a better conditioned unmarked fish than the ones that come out of our lake! A challenge that will test your angling skills to the max.....If you manage to hook into some of these Wild Carp be sure to have some strong line, these fish will really test you.
Middle Lake is an easier water and less of a challenge and is well stocked with Common Carp , Green Tench , Roach, Bream, Skimmers and Perch. ideal for the angler who likes to catch volume instead of weight.
