Mil­ton Pools

Mil­ton Pools wel­comes an­glers to the per­fect venue

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

ES­TAB­LISHED just over 70 years ago, Mil­ton Pools is one of those lit­tle known jew­els for fish­ing in Ox­ford­shire whether a novice or ex­pe­ri­enced an­gler.

Set in a delightful lo­ca­tion next to the M40 mo­tor­way near Ox­ford, there are six waters which of­fer ev­ery­thing from tran­quil plea­sure fish­ing to spec­i­men hunt­ing.

As well as round-the-clock an­gling, the fish­ery also of­fers a fully-equipped tackle shop with a wide se­lec­tion of bait & tackle, toi­lets with wash­ing fa­cil­i­ties and a flood­lit car park with Closed Cir­cuit Tele­vi­sion. There is also a café which is open from 8am – 9.45am on Satur­days, Sun­days and Bank Hol­i­days.

Night fish­ing is al­lowed, al­though an­glers are ad­vised to tele­phone in ad­vance, es­pe­cially if they want to fish the Spec­i­men Lake. This lake also of­fers Swedish-style cab­ins on most of its pegs (these cab­ins have no ser­vices - they are an al­ter­na­tive to sleep­ing in a bivvy).

All an­glers and vis­i­tors on ar­rival are asked to re­port to ei­ther the shop, or use the in­ter­com, which can be found on the right hand side of the shop door, be­fore pro­ceed­ing onto the fish­ery.

Most of the pegs are suit­able for dis­abled an­glers, with car ac­cess to many of the swims, whilst plenty of space is as­sured for plea­sure an­glers as all sum­mer matches are now held on Camp­bell’s Match Lake to en­sure other waters are al­ways avail­able for plea­sure and spec­i­men an­glers.

Fish­ing tu­ition can be ar­ranged by ap­point­ment with Ian Hor­rocks, for those look­ing to take up an­gling, or brush up on their tech­nique (please en­quire for fur­ther de­tails).
