Visiting friends in Harrogate this weekend. Crimple Fishery looks to be the nearest to their house, going Sunday morning.
Does anyone know of this lake and if its any good? Tips on what is in the water and what to catch them on, if anyone knows.

Thanks

It's got a drag of a hill to get back up at the end of the day! I know that much!

Last time we fished it it was very shallow.
There were literally thousands of tiny silver fish of about an ounce.
We caught a few small pastie sized carp and a couple of lumps on floating bread.

We found that 6 and 8 mm hard pelletts were best as feed as the silvers didn't let anything else reach the bottom.An 8 or 10 mm pellet banded was the best hook bait or artificial floating bread....but that was back in the summer.
We also had to book in,which was strange and had to knock the guy out of bed for a ticket as he'd told us not to go down without getting one first.


In all honesty You'd be better going across the junction to Sunrise lakes at Spofforth.Not much further away and a much better fishery!

What methodgob says really, the deeper end is down to your left as you look at the lake from the car park, there are a lot of bits to wade through but some quality roach too, nice enough bloke who runs the lake and keeps it pristine. He put a load of Barble in recently and they seem to be doing ok although they all appear to be around 12oz. Nice place to spend a few hours, and as mentioned sunrise 10 mins from here, spoiled for choice eh!
