Holme Grange

Holme Grange is a two acre gravel irrigation reservoir that offers fantastic Specimen Carp, Roach, Perch and Tench fishing for anglers of all abilities in a beautifully landscaped environment. The lake has been stocked with around 200 carp between 8-30lb, these are made up of original fish to 25lb and new stock fish to 30lbs in 2021. The roach have always been exceptional with specimens pushing 3lb and the tench and perch providing constant action on the float and feeder.  Holme Grange is ideal for angling socials, tuition events, competitions, product testing and launch events.

Stocked with some of the best British strains in the UK: 200 carp between 8-30lb+ with nothing smaller than 8lb present in the lake.

Over  7 years we have hand-picked and grown on our fish farming sites some terrific strains and we will introduce fish to compliment the stock when needed for the next generation to enjoy!

This lake is already renowned for it’s stalking in the edge with pellet, with many good anglers experiencing the stock up close and personal feeding on little spots in the edge and this lake is somewhere the quiet, patient and observant angler catches close in at the margins lowering bait into the bubbles.

The fish have proven very good year round so far so don’t be put off by a drop in temperature as the winter carp fishing here has been exceptional.  The specimen roach and perch fishing is worth exploring especially to take advantage of the winter season action when other fisheries are feeling the cold.

We offer exclusive lake bookings for groups and match anglers for 24hours giving each angler over ¼  acre each of water or you can book overnight sessions 24hr sessions per person in advance.
