Heron Lake

Heron lake was constructed in 1999 and is the largest lake in the fishery, consisting of 40 pegs. This lake is very mature with a large island in the center which is covered in aquatic plants and the occasional willow tree. This lake is a favorite for both match and pleasure anglers as it contains a large head of all species and an abundance amount of tench. During the summer months catches are mainly made up of tench with match weights in excess of 100lb.. On a average day in summer most pleasure anglers are easily looking at 50+ tench in one sitting.
