IMPORTANT: The pike fishing season is STRICTLY limited to 1st October to 31st March; outside this period, ie April to September, we do not allow anyone to catch pike and therefore use of spinners is not permitted during this period.

The fishery opening hours are strictly 6.30 to dusk and no-one is allowed entry prior to 6.30am.

No barbed or micro barbed hooks, baiting poles or spoons to be used. Anyone found using them will be asked to leave and not given a refund.

Just to clarify for Pike anglers: two single barbless hooks for dead bait allowed. Barbless treble hooks permitted for all lures.

Please note that the Twig rig, by OMC is strictly banned for use here at Shillinglee. Any angler found to be in breach of this rule will be asked to leave immediately, no refund. Thank you.

These rulings will be enforced by our Bailiff Andy as he walks around the lake.

Please check all our rules before fishing. Like most fisheries we do rig checks and anyone found breaking the rules will be banned for life.

Due to our costs having increased significantly over the past few years, we have amended our day ticket fees to: £20 adult day ticket, £15 after 4pm; £15 junior day ticket, £10 after 4pm. This fee increase will be applied from 1st January 2024.
