Damsel Lake

Online Night Fishing Bookings


The Damsel lake at Manor Farm was first opened in 1992 as a put and take trout lake. Over time the water has become more coloured and stocks of coarse fish and carp have increased gradually. In 2008 we started opening the Damsel Lake for coarse and carp fishing during the summer months. The lake became an instant success with both match and carp anglers, becoming known as an excellent runs water as well as match anglers bagging up with upto 100lb of bream and carp.

In 2011 we took the decision to convert this lake permanently to a mixed fishery, very similar to Becks, allowing both Carp and Match anglers to book the water.

The lake covers 5 acres with depths ranging from 5 feet in the shallows on the south bank to 12 feet in the northeast corner. A fringe of marginal reeds provide excellent habitat for the fish. The bottom is generally gravel with some silty areas and minimal weed.

The Damsel Lake contains carp to 25lb but averaging 8-10lb. Bream to 12lb. Roach, tench and perch. From 1 October throughout the winter months we stock regularly with small trout to provide sport for both fly fishermen and coarse anglers at a competitive price.

This is an excellent lake for beginners and carp anglers looking for plenty of runs. Carp on the fly are also very good sport during the summer months.
