Lydes Farm Widewater

Widewater

The largest of the three lakes at approx. 7 acres but the fishing areas are limited due to being surrounded by the golf course.

However, superb sport is usually the order of the day with common and mirror carp to 15lbs, tench to 6lbs 08ozs, bream to 7lbs 08ozs, rudd and crucian carp; and in good numbers. In addition there are roach to 2lbs plus and some superb specimen perch over 3lbs and in sufficient numbers to make this lake a very special favourite with many members. Gudgeon also live here.

Members must fish ONLY from the swims marked with paving stones.

Lydes Farm Dragonfly Pond

Dragonfly Pond

A small but very attractive pond with fishing from one bank only to make it even more interesting.

All fishing is from comfortable wooden platforms, and as there is a flat walk of approximately 50 yards from the car park it is more suitable for older members as well as disabled who can walk short distances.

The pond has been stocked with tench and TRUE crucian carp and there is a good head of roach and rudd with plenty weighing to 1 lb. plus. Small head of carp as well.

An "intimate" fishery which has also become a favourite with members. 

Lydes Farm Gazebo Pond

GAZEBO

Another small pond but with great sport situated on the straight road prior to arriving at Dragonfly and the car parking.

A great venue for some old fashioned light tackle fishing on the pole or waggler.

Plenty of small carp, mirrors and common around the small to 2lb mark.
The odd beast around 6lbs or so and there may be others.

There are also crucian, small tench and perch and a plethora of silvers, roach and rudd.

All fishing is ONLY from comfortable wooden platforms and they are all situated on the road side as you drive in.

Above you can see a map of the golf course.
