BROAD OAK TROUT LAKES

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Where To Fish -

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.
