Fishing In Lincolnshire
Although our lake was only excavated in 2003 the waters appear much older, having matured nicely to provide a host of reed clad bays and plenty of vegetation. The lake occupies approximately 1 acre and the depth varies from 1.5ft down to 9ft. We have a fine stock of hard fighting Carp some weighing in at over 20lbs, Tench, Perch, Rudd and Roach all of which are in prime condition. One of the greatest features of fishing at Mill Farm Leisure is the peace and tranquillity. With the cottages no more than 30 Metres from the lake and Willow Lodge & our Lakeside Lodges right next to it we offer a superb location for a fishing holiday. Our lake can be fished from dawn until dusk at any time of year.
