Par­tridge Lakes

Hun­dreds of pegs mean you’ll be spoilt for choice

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

BOAST­ING 15 waters and nearly 400 pegs, Par­tridge Lakes Fish­ery in War­ring­ton is one of the North’s lead­ing com­mer­cial fish­eries in terms of what it of­fers to those vis­it­ing its banks.

Each lake has been metic­u­lously de­signed with all types of an­gler in mind – so, whether you’re a big-fish hunter, plea­sure an­gler or match­man, your de­sires are sure to be ful­filled dur­ing your stay here.

Par­tridge is es­pe­cially pop­u­lar with the match bri­gade, host­ing big events in­clud­ing Fish O’Ma­nia and Match This qual­i­fiers, Su­per­cup Semi Fi­nals and the an­nual War of the Roses matches on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

The venue also prides it­self as be­ing THE busiest premier fish­ery in the UK, with the high­est turnouts for open matches – held ev­ery Tues­day, Thurs­day, Satur­day and Sun­day. Pen­sioner and dis­abled open matches are also held on Mon­days, Wed­nes­days and Fri­days, and boast a su­perb at­ten­dance week in, week out. But if matches aren’t your thing, there’s lots of room to plea­sure­fish across many of the mixed­stock waters. Lakes are al­ways avail­able to ac­com­mo­date the plea­sure an­gler, so you’re never short of a peg to empty!

Pole en­thu­si­asts should head to canal-style lakes Spey, Marsh or Pine, where you can catch plenty of carp, F1s, tench and bar­bel by fish­ing down the track and tight to the far bank.

Wil­low, Piper, Tweed and Rib­bon are per­fectly at home with bomb and feeder work for carp and F1s and even the pel­let wag­gler, which will be a pop­u­lar tac­tic at the fish­ery over the sum­mer!

Match re­sults are up­dated daily on the fish­ery’s web­site and Face­book page, so you can check out the best pegs to head for. Get your­self down to Par­tridge – we guar­an­tee you won’t be dis­ap­pointed!
