Two lakes - approx 5 acres & 11 acres - just off Jct12 M4 offering Catch & Kill and Catch & Release. Usually closed for several weeks during Summer. Bank fishing only, no wading:

Haywards Farm

Both lakes are usually crystal clear, fairly shallow with grassy, reedy margins. Plenty of interesting bays and well maintained surrounds. High quality rainbows and browns available which respond very well to buzzers. C&R lake is a favourite of mine as it offers challenging but rewarding fishing:

Nice brownie there. One of my best brownies came from my only trip to Haywards Farm - a lovely 8lb specimen.

Am thinking of heading to Haywards @ the end of the month to fish the C&R lake. Has anyone been there recently and knows what's working?
