Gatton Manor Lake


The main lake, (the only lake open for fishing) is a beautiful spring fed lake of approximately 1.5 Acres in size, with lots of natural features and wildlife plus some very good fishing. This lake has been an exclusive syndicate water, known for its above average Carp and Pike over many years. It also boasts an abundance of Roach and Rudd. Gatton lake is renowned for its variety of fish with Common and Mirror Carp currently being caught at well over 30lb, and recent catches by some of the lucky anglers of over 40lb. Bream of various size and some of our best Pike are growing quickly, so we are looking forward to seeing what will they weigh by the end of the year! We are open all year round - day tickets must bought in advance. Night fishing also available. Discounts for multiple days and nights. Before fishing please take time to read the Terms and conditions.

It is extremely important to us and our valued customers that only people who are responsible and of good character are fishing at Gatton. Members need to feel secure and know that their environment is as safe as it can be, and that their pleasure will not be spoilt by unnecessary noise and unruly behavior. We therefore require that all applicants are either known to us through regular daytime visits, are recommended by another fishing club, fishery or person of some standing in the community.
