The pool holds a very good head of perch, roach, rudd, carp and some bream. We initially stocked 100 mirror and common carp at 4-5lbs. The first of which were introduced March 2001 and some are now in excess of 30lb. The pool has been quite weedy in recent years, so it pays to find a good spot to present a rig by having a feel around with a bare lead for the clearer areas. There is a relatively large stock of carp for the size of the pool and the fish are usually quite active, so can be located quite easily during the warmer months of the year and frequently patrol the margins. The carp have become wiser as the angling pressure has increased but respond well to a light scattering of bait.
An otter fence was erected around the lake in 2018 to both protect the fish from predators and prevent the fish from escaping during flooding. Please ensure the gates are locked at all times and report any damage to the club. Also, if you see any holes caused by wildlife digging around the fence, block them off please.
