MILTON LAKE

The larger of the two lakes in the lower valley, Milton at three acres offers 30 generously spaced pegs to tackle large shoals of tench, crucian carp, roach, rudd, perch, bream and carp. The policy to develop Milton has always been to limit both numbers and sizes of carp present to allow anglers who enjoy sport from crucian, tench and other smaller species to find a haven away from the tackle busting doubles and 20-pounders that often muscle in when fishing Old Bury Hill or indeed Bonds Lake.
Carefully designed with anglers in mind back in 1991, Milton has been landscaped with both islands and subsurface fish-holding areas to offer plenty of potential from all the pegs. Thousands of lilies, reeds, irises, trees and selected shrubs have been planted to ensure the surroundings are as pleasing as the sport.
Due to generous stocking and a carefully managed environment, pleasure catches to 250 lb are commonplace on Milton during the spring and summer months, whilst match hauls routinely reach 100 lb. The mainstay of the sport during the warmer months is from pretty, golden crucian that run to 3 lb, plus tench that reach 7 lb and golden rudd and roach that approach 2 lb. However when ‘Jack Frost’ returns, Milton’s large shoals of specimen roach, rudd and perch burst into life when even on the coldest winter’s day, nets of red fins and stripers can be caught to 50lb.
All methods work at Milton, pole tackle offering great presentation for the crucian close in, waggler scoring further out for the tench and feeder and bomb great alternatives when conditions make float presentation tricky. Soft hook pellets, maggot, caster, corn and meat are all reliable baits, but in truth there is little that will not catch at Milton.
