Fishing breaks in the Newark area

Now we are about to open our doors again to social travellers let us have a look at what Newark has to offer and in this particular post we are looking again at fishing breaks in the Newark area. Presently under lockdown only local fishing is allowed and the regulations prohibit overnight fishing which is understandable in the present climate. These will of course be relaxed once we come out of lockdown and social gatherings are allowed, which for many of us cannot come soon enough.

We previously looked at the Newark and District Piscatorial Federation in a post back in September; they look after 14 sites in the area with the majority for members only however a few are for visitors which is great news. Check the website for details.

Also in the Newark area are some excellent lakes and below is a list of a few of them:

Cromwell Lake Fishery

The lake has many features and varies in depth between 3 and 18 feet with prominent gravel bars, silty areas and drop offs. There are various types of weed in the warmer months and this contributes to the size and health of the fish by supplying a rich natural food source. The lake is surrounded by beautiful Willow, Beech, Magnolia, Scott’s Pine and Cherry trees and as such as a haven for all sorts of wildlife. Check the website for full details.

Sapphire Lakes

There are three lakes with two specimen carp lakes and a match fishing lake. The two specimen carp lakes enjoy depths of 2 to 15 feet and are well stocked with carp of varying size, but some are over 25lb’s! Check the website for full details.

Portland Fishing Lakes

Based at Sibthorpe, not far from Newark, the fishery currently offers 8 lakes stocked with carp and silvers with ide and chub also available. On site, there is a toilet block and a club house that offers food over the weekend – they also have a drinks licence. For details check the link.

Trinity Lakes Fly Fishing

Only a 30 minute drive to Lowdham you will find Trinity Lakes which offers idyllic and tranquil surroundings in the form of two lakes of truly excellent water that remains clear throughout the year. Beautifully landscaped with bank fishing access carefully managed to provide sport for both novice and experienced fly casters. Check the website for details.
