The main lake at Mill Farm Fishery was originally an old sand and gravel pit that filled up with water when a spring was disturbed in the bottom. The workings were ceased in 1958 and the banks were set with vegetation and the lake became a private trout fishery of approximately two and a half acres.
In 1978, Tom and Pat Baker stocked the lake with coarse fish and opened the lake as a day ticket water. Over the years it has been stocked with Tench, Bream, Roach, Mirror Carp, Leather Carp, Crucian Carp, Grass Carp and Chub. The lake has become very popular with anglers from all over the Midlands and from farther afield. The lake is stocked regularly and good sized fish including carp of 10 – 20lbs are abundant. The largest carp caught in 2007 was 29lbs. In 1991 a Match lake was built but is open to pleasure anglers as well. The lake is approximately two acres and is also suitable for disabled anglers.
This lake is also stocked with Tench, Roach, Ide, Bream, Mirror Crap, Ghost Carp and Crucian Carp. The fish are all well established and on Match days in the Summer, large nets of fish are common.
Mill Farm Fishery also has a third pool suitable for smaller matches with 10 – 12 pegs available. This can also be fished by pleasure anglers.
Various baits are popular at Mill Farm but please do NOT use peas, beans, nuts, tiger nuts and similar. Ground bait is allowed if used in a feeder with maggots or on ‘the method’ but must not be thrown in the water in any amount. Barbless hooks must be used at all times.
