Please be aware that Farletonview is the latest addition to our portfolio of waters, therefore we anticipated that we may run into some issues in our first year of management. There is currently an algae bloom at Farletonview and members are advised that the fishing maybe more productive on one of our other waters. We will be installing Barley straw this coming autumn and spring to mitigate this from happening in the future (like we have done at Bigland). Unfortunately there is no quick fix for these problems and the fishery can only improve as time goes on.
Farletonview is a new WADAA water for 2019, which the club will be running in conjunction with the owners, the Robinson family. The fishery comprises two man-made lakes on a working farm, very close to M6 exit 36 (South Lakes). The lakes are spring-fed with a Ph of close to 8, making them incredible fertile. The owners tell us that there is significant overwintering here, with some fish growing on, so you never quite know what might turn up. The abundance of natural food suggest that imitative patterns will work well.
Fly life can be prolific with excellent buzzer hatches, olives and damsels later in the year. Caenis hatch in their millions on summer evenings during June and July. The fishery is not deep (a little over 8 feet) and a floating line is generally all that is needed, apart from during the colder months when lures come into their own. From late-spring through to late-autumn this is an excellent dry fly and nymph water.
This will be WADAA’s most user-friendly fishery; cars can be parked within the fishery, the banks are level with plenty of space for your backcasts. For the less mobile, or wheelchair-bound, there is a purpose-built platform. Beginners will find this a good venue to develop their skills.
There is also a café on site, providing refreshments and meals for 4 days – Thursday to Sunday – of the week, and for customers of the café, there are toilets. The café is open 9:00am to 4:00pm, Thursday-Sunday, with last orders called at 3:45pm.
Please note that all anglers must access the lake via the new access road, this track is located on your left 50 yards past the motorway bridge. The entrance is signed WADAA and all anglers must use this entrance. Please note there is strictly NO parking at the tearoom. Please see the map below for more details.
The fishery is open from 1st March until the 31st October.
Fishing is allowed from 8am to sunset. No entry to the fishery before 8am.
