September Update

Day Ticket Fishing

Colton is open for day tickets tomorrow, Thursday 11th Sept, as well as the Pleasure Lake (no Top Lake sorry).  Please get your ticket from Barford first. 

We’ll continue day ticket fishing through the winter, with a 2 week break over Xmas and New Year.  It’ll be various lakes available now though, we’ll try and keep the website, facebook and twitter updated but if you’re particular what lake you fish please feel free to call us on 01603 759624 or email on info@barfordlakes.com to find out.


We’ve stopped opening on Tuesday’s (think this will be a summer thing).  Many thanks for your support through the summer.  There’s now a decent air con unit in there which will also help keep it warm through the winter. 

We’re open on Thursday mornings, Saturdays until 12 and Sunday mornings from 8am (earlier on big match days).   We can cater for you on other days, please let us know if you or your club require food and we’ll see what we can do.

This year we’ve catered for some great co-operate days for £19 a head including bacon roll and hot drink on arrival, fishing peg and BBQ pulled pork hot buffet at the end of the match.  Minimum booking is for 12 – 15.
