Wansford trout fishery (YO25 4HG) , located in the small village of Wansford near Driffield East Yorkshire, is a pretty little venue of around 2 acres, the lake itself is best described as a moat, not a deep venue, with around six feet been the deepest part, its unique feature is that the lake is fed by a chalk stream (Driffield Canal), this causes the lake to have a tow similar to a stream, and therefor, the fish do react to this.
The lake supports an abundance of insect life especially bloodworms, which the fish go mad for, but as the lake is fed by the canal, many different food items find their way into the water.

The stock consists of Rainbows, and Browns from 1lb - 20lbs, there is also a few Grayling present that have found their way in from the canal.

Although bright lure type patterns do work, its usually the angler who persists with natural patterns that will have the most success.

In the warmer months the tow of the lake disturbs silt off the bottom, and although it doesn't look to appealing, it doesn't put the fish off, as food items also get disturbed.

Ticket prices start at 6.00 for catch & release rising to 18.00 for a four fish ticket.

The website is www.wansfordfishing.coolfreepage.com/

That website of theirs is one of the most annoying I've ever come across. It's just as well that people like Flipper write reviews on sites like this otherwise I'd doubt they'd get much interest from internet surfers. Having said that, I've had a quick look at it in real life and it seems to be a nice venue. Give it a try.
