Carpvale Doubles is an established, profitable specimen carp fishery situated on the outskirts of Malton. The fishery comprises a mature specimen carp lake, together with two large stock ponds, extending to a total area of approximately 11.3 acres (4.5 ha).

The original part of the main lake was created in the late 1960's and initially used for trout fishing before becoming disused in the late 1970's. The lake and surrounding land were subsequently developed by the current owners into a specimen fishery.
