It is lawful for all anglers to hold a UK rod licence. The authorities carry out random checks at the park in effort to enforce this. All anglers are expected to pay for their fishing, there are no collective agreements where anglers aren’t expected to pay. All the lakes will have a presence of weed. This is a natural occurrence, although does provide a more challenging session for anglers. However, those anglers with some knowledge will be able to change their fishing styles and bait to amend each lake and session. The weed helps provide cover for fish, oxygenate the water and provides a natural habitat for the fish and other species of wildlife that habit the lake.
Fishing is dawn till dusk only (no night fishing) with 1 person per peg and maximum of 2 rods per peg. All fish must be returned and keepnets are not permitted. Only barbless hooks may be used and all baits must be used in moderation (nuts and pulses are banned).
Tattershall Lakes is not a commercial fishery and we respectfully advise that it is called “fishing” and not “catching”. Many of our fish will be in excellent condition. Some may never have been caught before and we feel make a far better experience to catch a good condition quality fi sh, but perhaps in smaller quantities. However, there are many conditions that affect the fish and if they are feeding or not. This is out of the parks control and we cannot give refunds on day tickets purchased.
