Fishery for sale

OASIS Lakes Fishery in North Somercotes has been put on the market for £975,000 with Fenn Wright.

The lakes at Oasis were dug out for sand and gravel in the 1930s, and for 30 years prior to 1998 operated as a trout fishery.

Considerably improved and expanded in recent years, it now offers 98 purpose-built quality pegs, most with car parking behind, to day ticket coarse fishing anglers including an increasing number of visitors staying on site.

Island, Roadside and Carp are the names of the three lakes, which cover an area of over four acres in all, with Carp Lake reaching a depth of 15ft in parts. All the lakes are stocked with quality coarse fish including carp to 38lbs, tench, bream, roach, perch, ghost carp to 19 lbs and catfish. Regular matches attract a large number of entrants.
