Sherwood Forest Fishery

Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire

5 lakes with over 180 pegs!

Located just a few miles north of Mansfield, Sherwood Forest Fishery provides a choice of 5 different lakes where you can wet your nets. With 185 pegs to pick from you will be spoilt for choice:

Cavendish Lake – an oblong shaped lake with pegs down just one site. Fishing a pole down the side or at 11m works well, as do waggler and feeder tactics.

Maunside – a smaller straight lake with 20 pegs. With depths of up to 5ft this offers good year round pole fishing.

Sherwood Lake – a large “S” shaped lake (quite apt) with a number of pegs which will leave you feeling tired after a few hours fishing. There are lots of enticing areas and features to fish to.

Langdale Channel – a small oval shaped lake which is perfect for beginners or a relaxing pleasure session.

Holmedale Lake – possibly the most interesting lake due to its irregular shape. This lake holds the venues match record of 232lbs. The lake contains a high number of carp, but on hard days the large head of silver fish can provide good sport.

The venue often has regular matches – if you plan on fishing a specific lake you may be advised to check the lake is available to save being disappointed when you rock up with your tackle.
