Fish Welfare

Rods must not be left unattended in the water (EA rules state you must not be more than 3 meters from your rods).
All landing net’s cradles and slings must be properly dipped in our tanks before they are used on the lake for at least 3 minutes and should then be left to dry - please only bring properly dried nets, slings and cradles with you to prevent disease

When you hook that biggie don't panic! make sure you are able to give the fish line by adjusting your reel accordingly or use the back wind function, never drag a fish, let it fight itself out naturally and be patient, we expect anglers to take good care of our fish and the main cause of damage comes from aggressive playing or "bullying" of fish when on the hook. There are very few snags at Hurlston and unless you really have to you should be able to manage your catch comfortably without putting the breaks on too hard.

Repeated bullying of fish may result in a ban - if you are unsure please ask!

Multiple runs are a thing here, you may need to reduce the number of rods you are using if it goes crazy so you don't get into a mess, please don't be offended if you are asked to do this by a bailiff, it is not a bad problem to have :)

Please bring your catch in carefully, as we request and leave it to recover in the net for a few minutes after capture before unhooking, weighing and photographing.

When transporting fish from the water to the cradle make sure the landing net is rolled down ensuring fins are not crushed

Keep the fish wet at all times especially during the summer months - cradles must be wet before use

Keep a bucket of water beside your cradle at all times
Please do not stand up with ANY catch to minimise risk of dropping or damaging a fish
Please make sure the fish are fully recovered before release.
Carp Care/ Orabase/Clinic/Bonjela treatments must be applied to all hook holes and any body damage on the carp.

We may close certain areas, or the lake completely when fish are spawning, please note we will only do this if necessary, please respect this and know it is for the welfare of the fish, we may also decide to close areas of the lake in very hot weather and may ask that anglers do not fish close to any air pump or other countermeasures we may put in place

All fish must be returned to the water as soon as possible any mortality (Dead Fish) must be reported to the bailiff, PLEASE leave the fish in the water until the bailiff attends - do not try to move any dead fish or animals you may find, always report to the bailiff.

Use of the boat is not allowed, if a fish is tethered please contact the bailiff who will decide whether use of the boat is required.

You should also contact us and get help if you know a fish is tethered or snagged or if any animal or bird is in distress

NEVER lift a fish over the ground by hand, fish must only be moved in a net or sling and a cradle must be in place, and must be wet prior to being used. 

You will only be permitted to carp fish if you have a cradle and large landing net (note these must be set up first and packed up last)

If you do not have a big landing net and accidentally hook a carp while fishing for smaller fish please ask for help, alternatively you can hire cradles and nets from the bailiff or the cabin £5.00 each with a £30.00 deposit refunded on return.

Additional Information
Hurlston fishery is not a natural lake,it was created in 1983/84 as a trout fishing venue, which operated for about 10 years before changing to a mixed coarse fishing lake.

The spoil which was removed was taken to Liverpool and used to create the International Garden festival as part of the government attempts to regenerate the area,The site now is mostly domestic housing.

Over the years there has been lots of changes around the fishery virtually on the same site there is now an 18 hole golf course, gym,spa and swimingpool. (Hurlston Hall Golf Club)

After the lake was formed a major sapling planting scheme was undertaken the saplings now have matured and the lake now surrounded by mature trees and shrubs which keep the wind at bay and a most pleasant area to fish.

Contact Details & Map
Lake Info
All areas of the lake produce fish and if you fish well it is very likely that you will have a result even in cold weather. The lake gets shallower as you head further around into the bay. There are lots of margin areas to go at and lots of interesting swims. Simple tactics work best, you do not need to over complicate things. Small amounts of feed introduced regularly will work as will small pva bags, feeders or just a float in the margins with some simple bread flake or maggots. The lake has a reasonably flat bottom with very few snags the depth is consistent at around 5ft deep, shallowing off slightly to 3ft in the bay.
