Fishing at Highfields
We are the experts in offering fishing in the holiday park environment. Other parks often promote fishing but in most cases it is usually a Ďbolt oní attraction which is given very little attention. For us, fishing is the key ingredient. There are no jet skiís buzzing round the lakes whilst you are trying to fish, reserved swims or day ticket anglers taking all the best swims at first light! We ensure the natural environment is maintained, over-commerciality is avoided and most important of all, our customers benefit from exclusivity.
Our lakes are all approximately one acre in size and all benefit from attractively planted islands. Dug into the natural clay bed and designed with the pleasure angler in mind, they are all nicely shaped with several promontories and bays to fish from. Anglers have the option of fishing the narrower channel swims up to the islands and also larger areas of open water.
A marginal shelf has been built into each lake and is home to a variety of aquatic plants, rushes and insects. The shelf slopes gently away to the lake bed which has been contoured and sculptured to different depths to provide interesting features for both fish and angler.
Two of our lakes (Hawthorn & Rowan) are positioned within the Holiday Caravan/Log Cabin development and are exclusive to Holiday Home Owners (and Holiday-Makers). The third lake available to fish (Alder) is in the open meadows leading up to Reception.
- Hawthorn Lake contains a good head of Carp (Common & Mirror) and mixed Silver Fish including Roach, Bream, Perch, Rudd, Tench & Hybrids. There are a lot of Carp in the 1-2lb weight range as well as a very good numbers from 5lb-14lb
- Rowan Lake has been stocked with the light-tackle fisherman in mind. It holds over 850 beautiful Crucian Carp, hundreds of quality Tench and thousands of Silver fish too.
- Alder Lake is our day-ticket fishing lake. Containing a similar stock of fish to Hawthorn Lake, both holiday-makers/home owners and the public are able to fish this water.
- Willow Lake is being introduced in 2013 (watch this space)!
The lakes at Highfields are perfect for both the rod and pole angler, the beginner and expert. Few holiday parks have fishing as the main attraction, especially in such relaxing, quiet and natural surroundings. Fishing at Highfields is the perfect way to unwind.
