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 and Hodgett’s.

The lake was stocked with 275 stunning carp from both VS Fisheries and Mark Simmond’s and early signs are showing that these fish are doing very well indeed! The water is clear which has turned the fish extremely dark, 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 year or so, so ignore it at your peril!

*Please note, some swims are still closed on Holden’s*
