Carpvale Doubles is a picturesque 3.5 acre lake off the A64 on the outskirts of Malton. The original part of the lake was created in the late 1960's and initially used for trout fishing before becoming disused in the late 1970's.

Carpvale saw the site's potential and in 2008 purchased the lake and the surrounding land. Work then took place with the lake being extended to its current size. The site was fully otter fenced and shortly after the lake was stocked with a wide variety of double figure Carp from our own fish farms.

The lake holds a large head of Mirrors, with the lake record currently at 27.14. Along with these there are a number of good commons with the record standing at 30.4, Ghost Carp to 24.10 and also Catfish to 39.08. We have a long-term stocking policy which sees the introduction of new fish every winter from our sites.

Doubles has 14 wood chipped bivvy swims but only allows 12 anglers at any one time giving the last angler to arrive a choice of 3 swims. Each swim has an island feature as well as a marginal cover, making each capable of producing fish.

Doubles offers a flush toilet as well as a cold water tap and adequate parking just a short stroll from the lake.
