Fishing at Malston Mill Farm
The Lake was created in 1985 and is one acre spring fed, surrounded by marginal planting and lily beds with stunning views all around. It is well stocked with specimen carp including Mirror, Common and Leather carp ranging from 5lb to 29lb, many 8lb – 15lb to provide excellent sport. Some of our fish come from Lana Springs who have crossed the Emperor strain for their huge growth rates with the Leney/Dink strain, producing fantastic looking carp with good body shape and a huge variety of scale patterns, this coupled with their hard fighting characteristics and long life span the Lana Springs strain is some of the the very best available in the uk today. In the right waters these carp are capable of reaching that magical 50lb barrier. Watch this space.
Also we cater for the silver fish fisherman with Roach up to 2lb, Rudd and some brown trout.
