Welham Rd, Norton, Malton YO17 9QE
The lake is heavily stocked but by no means easy. The fish show themselves frequently and the species present are Carp to 26lb+, Tench to 10lb+ and the odd (but rare) eel to 4lb+ There is currently a lake management plan in place with the end result being around 100 fish all over 20lb The lake spans 5.5 acres, is spring fed and maintained by spring water via a borehole in the summer. With 12 bookable pegs, excellent facilities and services it ranks as one of the best day ticket lakes in the country, not for holding the biggest fish but for the setting and experience. The lake is only open for everyone to enjoy, membership is free but you must register on this site to join and bring suitable ID on your first visit.
