Lakeside Fishery -
Wolvey Road, Hinckley.
An old estate lake which is said to be around 500 years old. Delightful
to look at and even better to fish, it is believed to date back more than 500
years to times when monks first developed the water to breed and rear carp for
the table. Although the monastery has long since disappeared the lake remains,
and with its two central island crowned by weeping willows, open banks down one
side and 14 acres of woodland down its other three sides, Lakeside provides a
delightful setting for a day's fishing or longer stay. Lakeside holds Mirror
Carp to 32lbs, Commons to 28lbs and Crucian Carp over 4lbs.
Fishery rules are that groundbait is used in moderation,
barbless hooks only and unhooking mats must be used for larger fish. The fishery is open from 6.00am
until 8.00pm every day and night fishing is allowed by prior arrangement with
the on-site bailiff who can be contacted direct on 07808 562095.
In addition to a variety of day and night tickets, which must be obtained from
the cabin before fishing, Lakeside offers an annual membership at £176.00 for
adults and £100.00 for OAPs and the disabled which runs for 12 months from the
