Top Lake at Barford Lakes
The Top Lake is at our main Barford Lakes complex.
This water is open to Day Ticket anglers from April - September and during the winter months is available for match bookings from October - March.
It was established in 1989 and has its own car park which can be reached by turning left down the track just before the house at the end of the entrance drive.
We now have a portaloo on the car park of this lake (currently an awful pink colour!).
This water is stocked with the same range of fish as the Match Lake and has a fair mixture of species. Carp, the majority of which are in the 4lb5lb range and some running to 12lbs. There are also good heads of Chub, Roach, Rudd, Crucians and Brown Goldfish with a few small Tench and skimmer Bream.
In the summer it's possible to get the Crucians and Brown Goldfish one a chuck on caster with a 3-metre whip lots of fun!
Peg Layout and Depth
This 15 peg lake is about 10-12' deep (one of the deepest on the complex) and most swims have good marginal growth. The margins are 2-3' deep and at the end of the rod tip is 4' deep.
This lake provides quite a sociable and friendly environment as all anglers can be seen and heard from each peg!
Pegs 19 are easily accessible for wheelchair users.
All pegs fish much the same at this venue.
