Maypole Farm Lake, Buxhall - Open All Year - Strictly Members only

Maypole Farm Lake is a peaceful and tranquil venue of around 0.75 acres. With around a dozen pegs, roach and rudd are the main target species. There are a few perch in the lake, and in the past, fish have been banked to specimen size. Very occasionally, tench and crucian carp also come to anglers’ baits. Average depth is around five feet and the water is usually well coloured. The most productive methods for roach and rudd are light pole or waggler tactics. With maggots tending to attract small fish, casters are a favoured bait, along with tares – or elderberries when in season - fished over hemp. Bread and sweetcorn produce a larger stamp of fish for the patient angler and swapping to these baits late in the day, often brings rewards. This site has become a firm favourite for many members who enjoy catching good bags of silver fish in quiet surroundings.
