The Moors Lake

Moors Valley Fishing

Introduction

Useful information about fishing at Moors Valley Country Park and Forest.

The Moors Lake was dug in 1985, primarily to help control flooding along the lower reaches of the Moors River south of the Country Park. The northern end of the lake was de-silted in the autumn of 2003. It is fed by the Moors River, has a maximum depth of 2 metres, a natural clay bottom and covers an area of 9 acres.

The following fish, of quality size, are regularly caught: Roach, Rudd, Tench, Pike and Dace.

The Rangers organise fishing tuition for children in the summer holidays with experienced angling coaches.
