With the new addition of a Tackle and Bait Shop open 7 days a week, Partridge Lakes really has everything you need to successfully enjoy a great day of pleasure or match fishing!

Partridge Lakes has Ribbon Lake which is suitable for anglers with disabilities as it has specifically designed wheelchair friendly widened pegs, blue badge holder car parking spaces located next to it and a short distance from our facilities which are all wheelchair accessible.

Gold Lake is a prestigious members only water at Partridge Lakes, it boasts the title of our flag ship water due to it being the first lake to be created over 20 years ago and it fishes consistently well all year round with a wide range of species of decent sizes, Carp up to 22lbs, Tench up to 6lbs and Barbel up to 5lbs and full of silverfish and ide of good sizes.
Gold has 45 pegs with many different environments, from open water pegs for the big carpers to the peaceful and sheltered areas where you can fish to the islands up to 11 meters away where fishing the pellet waggler shallow or pole shallow/ on the deck, Gold really does cater for all styles of fishing and is sure to provide you with a fantastic days fishing along with the welcoming atmosphere from our frequent visiting members.

Our Specimen water called Holbar Lake totals 4 acres of waters. Holbar is an exclusive carp water with easy access to 47pegs. Recently is stocked with the largest fish on the complex with Mirror and Common Carp (3 to 26 lbs), Hybrid Carp, Chub, F1 Carp, Bream, Barbel and silverfish.

Holbar is a vast open water with depths up to 12ft in parts, and 35 meters to islands but this varies throughout the lake. Popular pegs are on the feature of the lake which is over the bridge onto the island which tends to fish well throughout the year as does fishing in between the islands for large carp. If its big Barbel you are after catching then head to peg 17 which has been nicknamed "Barbel Alley" where they often shoal up.

Anglers tips are to fish banded 8mm pellet with loose feed over the top, a method feeder or fishing pole and paste.

Holbar used to be two separate lakes (Holbar 1 & 2) however it was redeveloped, combined, depths increased and now fishing has improved on there, even producing the runner up weight in the Fish 'O' Mania Qualifier 2015 by Andrew Bailey for Daiwa Dons weighing in with 101.14 lbs on Holbar peg 16.
