Poynters Lake.

Poynters Lake is the longest and most Westerly Lake on the Clawford Complex.

It is situated above Clawford Lake and extends to about 3 acres and contains twelve swims.

It has breathtaking views over the Claw Valley with a back drop of a 10 acre meadow.

This Lake ranges from 2.5 to about 13 feet deep.

It has one island to the east and a large sunken island to the west.

The South bank is planted with Reeds and Rushes to provide some cover.

This lake is rarely fished by residents and is well worth a visit.

 

This lake also contains seven big (Simmo's) Female Mirror Carp to 28 lbs. a common carp to +30 lbs. and some pretty male linear & fully scaled Mirrors to mid double figures.

Poynters lake contains some Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout.

Fly fishing only for trout.

All fish on the Clawford complex are strictly 'Catch and release'.

The trout in this lake have been introduced to keep the fry down to a manageable level.

Fishing on Poynters Lake is for residents and a handful of local anglers who are members of the Clawford Carp Club.

This lake is now available to a limited number of anglers on a day ticket (subject to availability) & pre-booking.
