Three Springs (Lake 1)

A natural habitat that provides a wide range of insect life and changing light and wind patterns. Almost always requires a different approach to Lake 2.

(Bronze Ticket) The stock end, nearest to the car park, provides a fantastic area to develop your skills, or to reliably catch your dinner. Regularly stocked with great eating Rainbow Trout. Children are very welcome to fish here with an adult.
