Lodge Farm Fisheries

Lodge Farm Fisheries

Doncaster, South Yorkshire

Lodge Farm Fisheries is located in the Scrooby, on the Doncaster/Nottinghamshire border. The fishery has a choice of 5 lakes, which are all packed full of fish. The original Top Pond gravel pit is a very well established and mature water, the other lakes have been added between 2002 and 2005.

Top Pond - an old gravel pit which is around 2.5 acres in size. On here there are 46 pegs, in the middle it goes down to around 16ft, so there is a lot of water to go at. The carp run into the 20s, and the tench reach just under double figures.

Lily - a lake around 1.5 acres in size with 31 pegs. The water shallows up in the middle to around 4ft, but in the deepest areas you shou;d have around 9ft to play with. The lake is stocked with a lot of carp, so they are likely to be the strategy for any match winning sessions.

Long Island - another lake which is similar to Lilly. There is a central island in the middile og the 1.6 acre lake.

Field - the 38 peg lake was added to the venue in 2005, the 1.7 acre lake holds the match record. It is stocked with a range of species, the carp go to around 15lbs.

Signal - another recent addition, the lake is similar to the Field Lake.

The match record for the venue is over 300lbs - so that should give you an idea of what kind of venue this is. Onsite, there is a cafe which serves a range of hot and cold food.
