Fishing at Barmston Farm

Fishing at Barmston Farm

Barmston Farm offers some of the best fishing in East Yorkshire, and is free of charge for guests staying on the park. The lake is more than 3 acres set within a 10 acre field and is the perfect setting for a relaxing days fishing in the well stocked lake.

2015 Fishing Update

Spoke to one angler on wed 4th March 2015. He fished for a couple of hours on pellet not a bite! He changed to red maggot, hey presto 6 Bream 3-4 lb and 8 F1 Carp 2-3 lb and one big boy that snapped him off. A reasonable start considering the lake has not been fished for 4 months as we have closed for the winter. Things should only get better as the weather begins to warm up

We put in another 8 carp at 20lb in March 2014 just to top up the bigger stuff, they went to ground and proved very difficult to catch, hopefully they will be a little less shy and show themselves more frequently this year. Looking forward to some good fishing days this year fetch your camera and take some pictures of what you catch and I will be happy to put them on our new gallery.  Cheers Nigel.

On 19th June 2103 a 9lb 8oz eel was caught by Mike Jackson, the largest eel ever caught in the North of England and in the top few in the entire country.  Well done Mike!  Pictures below:
