Barlow Trout, Coarse
and Carp Fishery


Barlow Fishery lakes at Mill Farm Holiday Cottages

Trout Fishing

The three trout lakes are well stocked with brown and rainbow trout and no fish are introduced at less than takeable size. Most are put into the lakes at between 1lb - 1.5lb but there are many very much larger specimens to be caught. Some weights are well into double figures.  The wild brown trout in the brook will prove a match for even the most skilful angler.  Only barbless hooks are permitted.

Coarse Angling

Four lakes are devoted entirely to coarse angling. The lakes, situated at the east end of the fishery, contain all the variety of fish that you would expect to find in a high quality water.

The lakes are open all the year round from dawn to dusk.

Level ground and close proximity to the Keeper’s Lane car park make the coarse lakes particularly well suited to disabled anglers.   Wheelchair  friendly concrete pegs with rails have been constructed at strategic points.
