  1. Great place to fish for some runs. The average size is 5-8lb and you can tell they get caught a lot. The biggest would probably be around the 20lb mark rather than 30 as listed. There are not really any facilities on site other than a toilet.

    Park on the right side as you arrive and you can go down as far as the barrier/ turning point. The right side pegs are more popular as you don’t have to walk anywhere!
