Small Lake

This is the lake closest to the carpark and used mainly for pleasure fishing.

It has 31 pegs and less heavily stocked than the big lake but contains much bigger fish.

In here are Mirror Carp, Common Carp, Bream, F1’s and some eels appear to have sneaked in.

The lake was already home to many fish above 10lb and in March 2020 we put in 10 Mirrors between 15lb and 18lb.

In January 2021 we introduced 60 carp (c3’s) between 5lb and 7lb and 5 (C6’s) between 20lb and 22lb.

Anyone may just turn up and start fishing and the bailiff will come round and collect your fee.

We do allow night fishing on some pegs on this lake however we only allow 6 at any one time and you must register to be considered.

Register Here for Night Fishing OVER 25’s ONLY

Big Lake

The big lake has 38 pegs and is the first you come to as you come through our gate.

This lake is heavily stocked, mainly with F1’s, Mirror Carp, Common Carp and Bream but also has a significant number of Tench, Ide and Barble in it.

The average size of fish is about 1.5lb and the biggest in there is about 15lb

Pleasure fishing is allowed on this lake during daylight hours, however this is the lake we hold matches on, so is often unavailable on Wednesdays and Sundays.

People fish this lake with both poles and rods, mainly using a float and common baits are maggots, sweetcorn and pellets.

OPEN matches

At Newbridge we hold an open match every Wednesday. Anyone is welcome.

You won’t get rich at this match with just a £10 entrance fee and 60% of fees given back in prize money, but it’s a pleasant social event and a bit of fun.

The draw is at 9am and fishing starts at 10am.

We take food orders when you draw your peg and your breakfast of Sausage/Bacon/Egg barms are served to your peg before 10am (£2 per barm)

You fish until 3pm and then all keepnets are weighed and the winner is announced.

Prize money is paid out to the first 3 when there are 10 or more anglers and the first 2 when less than 10.

We allow a maximum of 22 anglers per match and you can just arrive and book on, however on good weather days it is better to book on by clicking here (opens in new window) or texting 07824 316212 so you don’t miss out.

We do occasionally run other open matches and these will be advertised on this website and on our Facebook page, Newbridge Fishing Lakes.

Angling Club Matches

Our lakes can be booked by Angling Clubs for them to hold their own matches on.

The match lake has 38 pegs, we recommend a maximum of 22 anglers to allow enough room however up to 38 are allowed.

The smaller lake has 31 pegs and is not usually used for matches however can be when specifically requested.

The whole lake can be hired or a specific number of pegs. If pegs are booked then it is possible, pleasure anglers or another match will also occupy the lake.

When booking the full lake, you have exclusive use of the whole lake from 8am until 3.30pm. Your anglers may also stay on the lake and pleasure fish after the match if they wish to do so. There is no additional charge for this.
