This is the first lodge that you come to when you approach Starmount Lodges.  

You can only fish on three sides of the lodge, the side parallel to the main road is not fishable because no access is available and it is covered with reeds.

The water is very shallow, but do not let this put you off fishing because it is well stocked with fish, although it fishes better in the summer months because of the shallow depth.

  There are twelve proper fishing platforms of which some have steps for easy access and one other peg which has no platform but can be fished.  

  You can park at the side of the lodge on the road or on the car park provided just past the lodge.

  This water is used for our junior coaching sessions and junior matches through most of the summer months on Tuesdays.

  This water can also be fished on day tickets, which can be purchased on the bank from the bailiffs or at the local tackle shops, which can be found by clicking here - Tackle Shops
