Best local tactics :

  • Large carp can be seen basking around the islands in the Summer months.

  • Deeper water near the dam also makes pike fishing a must in this area.

Best pegs :

  • The deeper water tends to be towards the dam and the shallower water to the North of the lake. As this lake is rarely fished, there is not really a local " Hot Spot."

General Information :

  • At one time Roundhay Park was a premier match water that attracted fishing legends like Bob Nudd to compete in major competitions.

  • It still holds a large head of specimen sized bream - large carp and pike are present into the 20lb bracket.
