Weeton lake fisheries

Weeton Lane, Huby, LS17 0, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

This water is not your run of the mill commercial water. The owner allows anglers into his back garden, to fish a water that probably covers about a 1/4 of an acre with a central island designed primarily for the pole angler. Most swims are in reach of the pole, although 16 metres may be required at its deepest point towards the rear side.
The water has an average depth of around 4 ft in most places. The addition of tree stumps against the island make natural fish holding features and this is the first place that the fish head to when hooked. There are no facilities for anglers and the water is suitable for anglers with disabilities.
The water is stocked mainly with carp up to 8oz, whether that be common, mirror or ghosties. They are voracious and it is rumoured that there are over 10,000 of these fish in the water. Nets of 30 - 40lb are not uncommon, with being fairly newly stocked fish they are taking pellet in preference to most other baits. There are some larger fish present, but getting through the smaller fish is the problem here. Large baits should be more selective, but when tried they have tended to register lots of false bites as the smaller fish are having a go. There are also perch, chub and roach stocked.
The water is situated on the main Leeds to Harrogate Road. From Pool - head towards Harrogate for about 3 1/2 miles, you will then come into Huby village, the water is situated on Weeton Lane, which is a right turn if coming from Leeds. You will see the railway bridge and the lake is situated in the grounds of the last house before the bridge on the right hand side (Black gates).
