Oldmans Lake

Brief description of fishery:

Set in farmland with woods on one side, Oldmans is a mixed fishery containing Carp, Tench, Roach, Rudd and Bream in abundance.

Please note the following:
  • no artificial baits – for example, plastic corn – allowed at all
  • please don’t bring your own landing net, keepnet, weighing sling or unhooking mats to the fishery; landing nets are available from the container by the lake and should be returned when you leave
  • Keepnets are only permitted during official matches – these will be provided
  • Entry is permitted only after 8:00am and you should be off the fishery by dusk
  • Fishing is only allowed between the limit boards and there is a maximum of two rods per angler

NIGHT FISHING: Night fishing is not permitted at Oldmans Lake.

Location & Access

In fine weather, vehicles can be parked close to the lake. At other times, a downhill walk across the adjoining field is required. Cars are only allowed to drive down to the lake when the gate is marked “FIELD OPEN”.

Important: Please be sure to read the signs by the lake gate at the bottom of the field before you leave.
