This mature fishery created from old gravel workings that were completed over twenty years ago. The club acquired the pool seven years ago, during the intervening years the pool and its surroundings had been left to nature, which has now created an attractive fishery. The pool is two acres and has several small islands. The depth varies greatly from peg to peg some areas 3-4ft others 12-15ft. The pool holds perch, roach, rudd, bream (6-7lbs not uncommon) and carp into the high teens as well as a good head tench to 5lb plus. The pool is situated next to Cullens Pool and access is the same with parking behind most pegs. We have plans to carryout further development of this fishery in partnership with the Environment Agency. As part of their River Trent project they are linking pools and lakes into the Trent to create Fish spawning areas and refuges during the winter floods. This will benefit both the fishing in the pool and the river and should create a great winter fishery when the Trent is carrying extra water.
