Holden's Lake
Norton Disney

Much like Pettitt’s lake, Holden’s has been designed as a lower stocked, big fish style venue, rather than a runs water like Billy’s, Hodgett’s or Stock’s.

The lake was stocked with 400 stunning carp from both VS Fisheries and Mark Simmond’s which are all growing very well in the deep, clear water with the lake now holding a very good head of twenties and at least 12-15 thirties up to a current lake record of over 38lb!

With plenty more fish in Holden’s rapidly approaching the thirty pound mark, we expect to see a number of new thirties gracing the banks over the coming months. So, although not the easiest lake on the complex, the rewards are certainly worth it when you do get them!

As with all of the lakes at Norton, the fish in Holden’s have been fed plenty of house pellet over the last few years and do respond very well to bait mixes that include it, so ignore it at your peril!
