Lake Rules

Here at Barbret Lake we want all our guests to have a great time and enjoy themselves, however, rules are put in place to prevent any problems occurring.

We fully understand that errors can be made. Our guests are required to read and agree to abide by our rules prior to fishing to prevent any misunderstandings. We pride ourselves in careful handling and the condition of our carp. Good carp care is vital, so with this in mind the following rules apply, after all nobody wants to catch carp in bad condition.
