Kippax Park Fishery


The Leeds and District Amalgamated Society of Anglers (known as Leeds DASA) has a special discount arrangement with this commercial style 4 lake pleasure and match fishery that opened in Summer 2008.

Skylark is an 18 peg long oval shaped match and pleasur lake stocked with ide and carp to 5lbs (mirrors and commons) tench and trout, trout are stocked each year to provide good winter sport then removed via macth catches in the spring and moved to 'rainbow lake'. it is usually available for pleasure fishing since Lapwing is usually favoured for matches. Although there haven’t been many matches on Skylark, the match record has already reached 70lbs.

Lapwing is a 27 peg long oval match lake with typically 16 metres to the island with a canal style profile – the far shelf and near shelf sloping down to a central ‘track’ that is approximately 4-5 feet deep. The predominant species are common and mirror carp (to 10lbs and growing rapidly!), with ide, some tench, barbel and a few trout that will still feed in winter. Open matches are run on a wednesday and saturday with club matches on a sunday. the current record is 133lb by yorkshire fishing's own chris kendal aka hatman.

Rainbow is 2.5 acre and no longer a fly fishery, although visitors wishing to follow this discipline still can do so but bait anglers will be using the lake, this will be a pleasure lake only, which means visitors will hopefully be able to enjoy the site when matches are taking place which hasn't been the case to date.

The new lake 'Osprey' will hopefully have plenty of matches and if things go to plan the opens will be spread over both Lapwing and Osprey which gives the opportunity to hold 40/50 peggers

the site now has a total of 76 match pegs and a two acre 20 peg pleasure lake with future plans including cafe and toilet facilities

From the A63 on the south side of Garforth take the turning to Kippax ( Leeds Road ) & straight on until you come to a 3 exit mini roundabout. Take a right at the roundabout, which takes you down a hill for about 200 yards, then the road bends to the right but you go straight on (Brigshaw Lane) & you'll see the fishery entrance on the left at the bottom of the hill after 200 yards.


Nearby Brigshaw School - WF10 2HR The complex entrance is on the left, before you would reach the school if approaching from the North (i.e. from the Kippax/Garforth direction).


Clubs can book matches by calling 0113 248 2373 during Monday or Wednesday evenings.
