Den­nett’s Fish­ery

Den­netts is a plea­sure com­plex too

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

ONE of the UK’s first ever com­mer­cial fish­eries, Den­netts has been run­ning for decades and is still go­ing strong. For­merly Hey­ford Lakes, the Northamp­ton­shire venue of­fers three pools both kids, plea­sure and match an­glers can all ex­cel.

At three-quar­ters of a mile long and 15m-16m wide, the 132-peg snake lake now caters for plea­sure an­glers too. It has depths of 4ft-7ft and is stuffed with carp, tench, cru­cians, chub and sil­ver­fish. Tight across, in the near mar­gin and down the track will see you bag up on roach and rudd.

For easy bites from carp and sil­ver­fish there is the quar­ter­acre Acorn Lake. This pool suits young­sters or be­gin­ners as it holds plenty of small carp and sil­vers with the odd lump.

The café, mean­while, of­fers a good break­fast at the week­end and bait and re­fresh­ments ev­ery day while the tackle shop stocks fresh bait and gear from all ma­jor man­u­fac­tur­ers.
