BROAD OAK TROUT LAKES
Two spring-fed lakes in the shadow of the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire’s ‘Elgar country’. Designed by experienced fly anglers, the lakes are three acres and one acre in size, and both offer ample casting room and a variety of bank profiles and depths. In between 12 and 15 feet of water, the trout maintain their superb condition through the seasons. A wealth of aquatic insect life provides natural food for the trout, while the developing flora by the lakes allow the stalking angler to practise his craft. Both lakes are stocked with rainbow and blue trout with a minimum weight of around 2lb, along with a selection of brown trout. All the fishery’s facilities are designed to cater for disabled anglers. An on-site tackle shop offers an extensive range from leading brands plus a selection of appropriate flies, and a comfortable log cabin-style fishing lodge sells refreshments and offers a home-from-home retreat for visitors, complete with a log burner. The fishery often has a selection of pre-owned tackle available at competitive prices and for those fishermen wishing to try before they buy, there are matched rod/line sets for hire. Casting instruction can be pre-booked, either on a group or one-to-one basis and the fishery also welcomes corporate bookings. A meeting room is available and breakfast and lunch can be provided to your requirements. Alternatively, enjoy one of Broad Oak’s ‘feather and fin’ days, with clay pigeon shooting in conjunction with the nearby South Worcestershire Shooting Ground.
