Welbeck Lakes Fishery

Anglers have come to fish at Welbeck for generations, drawn not only by the exceptional beauty of the estate but also by the abundant number of fish and diverse range of species found in the lakes.

Welbeck Lakes Fishery

Welbeck Lakes Fishery offers three well-stocked lakes, with up to 80 acres of fishing. Pike, eel, bream, roach, perch, tench, carp and cyprinids can be found in the lakes. Pike up to 40lbs and carp up to 30lbs have been caught.

 

The Fishery is centrally located on the Welbeck estate, offering members the opportunity to fish in a natural setting surrounded by stunning estate parkland with spectacular views of Welbeck Abbey across the Great Lake.
