Wold Lake, Wold Farm Fisheries, Poddington
The Wold lake is predominantly a Carp water of approx 2 acres in size with 2 islands, holding immaculate specimens to over 30lb.
One of the characters of the lake being a large ghost carp that can be very easily distinguishable by its bright colours as it swims across the surface.
A stalkers paradise, but tread quietly, they can be shy!
What do I need to know?
Wold lake also contains some Catfiish to over 30lb and they’re caught fairly regularly by the carp anglers.
There are only 6 swims and the lake is very secluded so you can really get the sense of solitude and exclusivity, it almost feels like a little french lake.
Night fishing is available on this lake as part of a 24hour ticket.
The price is a little top heavy at £40 for a 24-hour, although it’s priced to keep it premium and quiet, it doesn’t change the fact you can fish more recognised venues nearby cheaper.
This pricing is to your advantage though if you can justify it as it keeps the angling pressure down and generally its more day ticket anglers you’ll come across.
I fished the lake heavily for around a week a few years ago now and we had some nice fish, the majority came from a spread-boilie approach with wafters fished around it.
Little fell to the particle approach other than lots of small carp under 3/4lb, which I’m not sure is still an issue at the lake.
We had the majority of our fish off the surface using a free lined bit of bread, dropping slowly through the layers cast in front of roaming fish, I reckon the Nash bread bomb would work really well.
Fishing on the surface with mixers during the summer months can be extremely effective but make sure you creep around and conceal your presence because the slightest movement or wrong cast can put the carp well on edge.
Wold Lake is very much a stalkers paradise. Because it’s small and intimate, you are NEVER far away from a carp or two. Tread carefully and don’t forget your polaroids!
Don’t go to the Wold Lake without these:
