Welham Lake is located in Malton, North Yorkshire and has been popular with many magazines, consultants, Sky sports and tackle company road shows over the years. Welham has built a reputation for its beauty, tranquillity and quality of fishing.
The lake spans 5.5 acres, is spring fed and maintained by spring water via a borehole in the summer. With 12 bookable pegs, excellent facilities and services it ranks as one of the best day ticket lakes in the country, not for holding the biggest fish but for the setting and experience.
The lake is set in stunning surroundings, with the surrounding landscaping originally performed by the famous Capability Brown.
There is an abundance of wildlife. We share the lake with an array of bird life from Buzzards to Kingfishers and don’t be surprised to see Foxes, Badgers or Deer in the surrounding woodlands.
The lake is heavily stocked but by no means easy. The fish show themselves frequently and the species present are Carp to 26lb+, Tench to 10lb+ and the odd (but rare) eel to 4lb+
There is currently a lake management plan in place with the end result being around 100 fish all over 20lb
The swims are placed with tranquillity in mind – indeed unusually for a day ticket lake during the summer you cannot see another angler from your peg, giving the feeling of exclusivity.
