Skylark introduces day ticket fishing

by | Apr 13, 2021 | News | 0 comments

Skylark Garden Centre is opening its lakes for day ticket fishing from 1 May. Skylark Lakes is formed of three lakes spanning the complex, which has matured over the last 20 years.

The three lakes offer more than 40 swims with a range of complicated features; these can be both challenging but rewarding and offer an opportunity for all anglers, from those into big carp – with many above 20lbs and several in the 30lbs, bream, tench, pike or big roach – to those who want to relax and enjoy the wildlife.

Skylark Lakes recently came under new management. It is investing heavily into the complex and lakes over the coming years.  “We are looking to development sustainable day ticket waters that encourages more participation into angling” said Edward Gowler, managing director of Skylark

Skylark Lakes will be offering two ticket types; a day ticket (6am-9pm) and a 24 hour night ticket (11am – 11am). All sessions must be pre-booked online as daily numbers will be strictly limited to avoid overcrowding.
