Hi From Hollingworth Lake

Intros are always a pain.. I live near Holligworth Lake and have fished it for many years. It just seems to get better and better with the quality and size of the fish it produces with most that I catch looking like they have never seen a hook. Which is probably true as the lake is very under fished. The best method in my opinion is ground bait feeder with a few red maggots and the same on the hook. worm can also be very good and will bring bites most species. Usually you have to get four or five casts with the feeder at about 60yds
until the fish start to respond. In the last month I have had several good sessions with good Roach and bream. If you would like any advice on the fishery please message me

Hi, just reading your post about hollingworth lake... I'm planning on going on here in a few weeks, can you tell me the best side of the lake to fish from? Somewhere with good access so that I can take my little boy easily, also where do you purchase day tickets?

I'm planning on going one Monday afternoon, is this a quiet day? (less dog walkers etc?)

Hope you read this, thanks!
