There are two options to fishing Horseshoe Lake, in both instances all anglers MUST be Carp Society members
DAY TICKET OPTIONS
As from Monday 13th July Horseshoe Lake will reopen to day tickets for Carp Society members in a limited capacity.
Day ticket arrival and departure times on Horseshoe
Midweek Day ticket anglers can arrive and book in at the shop between the hours of 0900 – 1600 Monday to Friday. Departure from the lake is also only permitted during those hours. That does not mean you have to arrive and leave on the same day. You can fish as many days/ nights as you wish but on your departure date you can only leave between 0900 -1600. The weekend arrival and departure is slightly different. See below
Weekend - You can arrive and report to the shop on Saturday between 0900 – 1200 (midday) No arrivals on Sunday If you are leaving the lake on Saturday or Sunday, you must do so between the hours 0900- 1200 (midday). The day ticket gate will be unlocked between those hours on Saturday so please just close the otter fence gate behind you when you leave. The gates will however be locked on Sunday. If you are leaving on Sunday (only permissible between 0900-1200 midday) you will be given a phone number to ring to let you out.
This procedure is brought about strictly for security reasons. We want our anglers to be able to come to Horseshoe, relax and enjoy the fabulous fishing and surrounding environment available here. There is an alternative should our opening hours not suit. We offer a 12 month permit that gives you unlimited access, so please look at that option. We appreciate this will not suit everybody but too many times now over the years we have found the gates left open and unlocked and found people who shouldn’t be on the lake wondering round willy nilly. It’s all well and good saying ban people or name and shame them but in reality that is closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. Unfortunately we live in a time when selfishness and lack of respect for others seems to be the order of the day and we have to react accordingly to ensure the comfort and safety of our anglers.
