Review: Never leave home to go and fish Drayton Lake without an umbrella, even in the height of summer. Situated along side a 9 hole golf course is maybe not the best recipe for a relaxing afternoons fishing. There is a 20 feet high mesh fence in place along the length of the lake, but it does not tend to stop all of the balls which travel at horrendous speeds, hence the umbrella for your own protection. Having said all of that, this is a excellent little fishery, brimming with small carp, and including specimens up to around 25lbs. Match and pleasure bags regularly top 60lbs, with everyone averaging around 15-20lbs, even in winter this great little water produces lots of fish. An abundance of very fine specimens lay beneath this beautiful and well stocked Coarse fishing lake including Carp, Rudd, Tench, Bream.

Open daily from dawn 'til dusk, this tranquil spot is available to anyone with a fishing license and has it's own free parking area next to the lake.
