Had a great day fishing at the lake. Beautiful location good for taking photos. The staff are great and very helpful. Lots of good size fish which put up a good fight. I would thoroughly recommend a day fishing there.

Spent a very enjoyable morning pursuing the trout in the smaller (and clearer) of the two lakes available at the fishery. If, like me, you enjoy stalking your fish then this is the place to do it. The larger lake is also well stocked and...More

Lovely location around a well stocked lake. Go there in the morning for the best fishing. Well worth it
