Please observe the following rules of the Lakes;

Angling session limits in place to prevent swim blocking across weekends.

48 hour sessions allowed between 7pm Sunday – (but must end) 7pm Thursday 

Fish up to 36 hours between 7am Friday – 7pm Sunday

Swim boundaries

At Seven Lakes we like all anglers to fish to the half way rule in most general cases. That said with the shape and layout of Lake 6 we have issued a swim map to enable fun and sensible fishing. Due to the back of the island being such a fantastic feature, we wanted to keep the option of fishing there open to anglers during quiet periods. Please see rule on map.
