As part of our growing business, we have our own complex of lakes, comprising of 4 lakes, available to fish throughout the year on a day ticket.
We have developed the lakes, into a clean and tidy venue to enjoy your fishing, with comfortable pegs on each lake.
We purchased the lakes in 2007, the lakes were formerly known as spring valley waters, and were originally only two lakes, the first was excavated in 1993 and is known as Oliver, its design is similar to a moat, ideal for pole fishing. The second lake known as Ben was created over the winter in 2001 and not long after a third lake known as lee, several strip lakes were excavated after lee lake, recently the strip lakes have been developed into one lake called Gracie. The complex of lakes can be seen from the northbound carriageway of the M1 motorway just past junction 39 as you head towards Leeds, but to get to it, anglers have to go into Wakefield and head out towards Huddersfield, follow the signs for the Slazenger sports centre, take a left turn onto green lane and follow the railway line down to the motorway and you cannot miss the water. Postcode for your sat nav is WF4 5DY.
All our lakes can be booked for match fishing 01924 263500 and there will always be somewhere to pleasure fish. Bailiff will collect money on the bank and give out tickets which will allow you to fish any lake (if not match booked).
