Fishing Lakes

Fishing on the lake at Polhilsa

The name 'Polhilsa'has the meaning of rising springs and this is echoed by the fishing lakes situated at the farm. Both lakes have been constructed and are fed solely by rising spring waters.

The Pleasure Lake

Constructed in 1995 and approximately 1.5 acres, this lake is fishable at any time to guests staying at Polhilsa Farm. This lake is aimed at the pleasure angler looking for 'a few bites'. It is stocked with carp between 2lb and 10lb, roach and rudd. It is a fun lake where the action can be non stop! The best baits are pellet, sweetcorn and maggots. Fish next to features and increase the size of your hook bait to catch the carp.

The Syndicate Lake

The lake is approximately 3 acres and aimed at the experienced, serious and patient angler with its low stock of carp. Although this is a syndicate lake, holiday guests can fish by booking a slot in advance. You will also find roach and rudd in this lake.
