This will get you to the lodge at the entrance of the track into the Lakes,  just follow the track down past the paintballing on the right. Keep following the track until you come to the end and you turn left down through the gate to the lakes car park. Please note that sometimes the gate is closed due to livestock being in the fields, if the gate is closed for this reason please ensure you close it after you enter and leave the lakes. .

    Myself and two friends visited Witton Castle Lakes for a days fishing on Sunday 19th of May upon arrival we were informed that the two large lakes had flooded the day before at around 5pm and that both lakes were coloured. We asked if the lakes were still fishing ok but did not get a answer as we have fished lakes that have been coloured after heavy rain before we did not think this would be a problem so we signed in and payed. When we arived at the lake side we found both lakes to be more than just coloured the water was cloudy with dirt and the the lakes were full of debury from the previous days flooding. We fished the lake for 2 hours moving around to try and find fish with no sucsess it was obvious that the lakes wernt fishing at all. The only Lake unaffected was the small lake which was full of anglers and impossible to get on. We were very disapointed that we were not advised to go and see the lakes for ourselves to make a better decision weather to fish them or not we basicaly payed full amount £20 each to fish 1/3 of the fishery i.e. the small lake I dont think we will be back…

      It’s not the fisheries fault the water was cloudy, the lakes fish exceptionally well on most days.
