Winters Lake

Online Night Fishing Bookings

Winters is one of the harder lakes at Manor Farm, but if you are prepared to work at it, this is the lake where you are most likely to catch fish over 30lb. For the more experienced carper or those up for a challenge, Winters Lake is the place to be. 

Winters Lake was established in November 2004 and has an average depth of about 9 feet with a deeper area in the north eastern corner going down to 12 feet. There is also a very shallow bay that is not permitted for fishing to attract wading birds. The lake has several islands as well as a good fringe of reeds around the margins plus a few clear patches in mid water. These are all good features to fish to, along with surface fishing in the warmer evenings.

This lake was initially stocked with carp reared at Manor Farm, including a 32lb common as well as many other 20's and a few in the top teens. The lake holds around 100 good sized carp, most of which are well over 20lb with many going over the 30lb mark. The stock includes a lot of heavily plated mirrors to high twenties as well as commons to mid 30`s and a few original mirrors which also run to mid 30`s. As with all of our lakes the fish are breeding, therefore there some smaller carp. A few more unusual fish have also been scaught in Winters including roach-rudd hybrids over 4lb, a rare chance to catch such fish.

This lake is on a booking only basis with a limited number of anglers, so please book this lake in advance to avoid disappoinment.
