Lake View Fishery

Lake View Fishery

Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

Lake View Fishery is located in the Vale of Belvoir, close to the edge of the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire borders. The venue offers a choice of 10 lakes which are all commercial style/match tactics type of affairs. If you are into commercials then you will love it and have the day of your life... if you prefer fishing a more traditional or larger expanses of water then you might not enjoy Lake View as much. Either way, whatever your thoughts on commercial venues, you should get to catch a lot of fish so long as you adjust your approach depending on the weather.

On site facilities include:

  • Ample car parking
  • Toilet facilities
  • Stone laid paths - good when it has been raining!
  • Timber decked fishing platforms
  • Cafe facility for breakfasts and lunches
