Pettitt's Lake
Norton Disney

Pettitt’s lake is destined to be the ‘big fish’ lake of the complex. It has just 13 swims on 16 acres so each swim commands a decent amount of water. This has always been very important to us here at Embryo. We want every angler to have their own chunk of water to fish without being hemmed in by other anglers or having others cast into their water!

In early 2019, the lake was stocked with 150 cracking fish to mid-thirties. The vast majority of which are now over 20lb so it’s only a matter of time before it has a really good head of big fish. In October 2019, the stock was boosted with 100 stunning fish to 20lb+ from Priory Fisheries, bringing the stock up to 250 fish. More and more twenty pounders are hitting 30lb and so far, well over fifty different thirties have been recorded since opening, up to a current lake record of 45lb+ but we expect that number to grow considerably over the next few years!

The lake bed really does resemble an egg box in places, making it a really interesting lake to fish with plenty of features to fish to. Please see the lake map opposite for swim boundaries (swipe left for depth map).
