Fishing Lakes

Our Fishery

Waterloo is comprised of three lakes, each built for a different purpose. Waterloo, Wellington, and the Junior Lake.

Our original Waterloo fishing lake has 35 well spaced pegs and is available for pleasure anglers and club match bookings. This picturesque lake has a variety of species including carp to 25lbs+, mirror, common and true crucian carp, as well as tench, chubb, and barbel.

Our Junior is a smaller 12 peg lake designed especially for juniors and beginners, aged 8 and above, it provides the perfect environment to learn to fish with good guidance. Fishing lessons can be also booked with Bob Woodley, which you can call and discuss with him on 07961963765.

Wellington Lake was a purpose built match fishing lake but has been converted into a private lake for tourers in 2013.

With 15 extra large caravan pitches directly adjacent to the water's edge, it is perfect for those who wish to come and stay with us and enjoy a fishing holiday.

The feedback from those fishing on the lakes has been very positive and we have had bags of 100lbs plus being caught.

There is secure parking close to the lake, so it is never too far to go to get to your peg. But if you're enjoying yourself, why not book a weekend visit, with a range of accommodation options if you wish to turn your day into a stay.
