Bay Malton AC
…and now night fishing’s allowed on the Serpentine
FROM delightful small farm ponds packed with silverfish, to large multi-acre waters with specimen carp, pike and bream, as well as some stunning stretches of river, Bay Malton Angling Club is one of the North West’s top clubs to join.
The Cheshire group, which has been established since 1990, also runs the commercial complex Border Fisheries which holds seven fish-filled lakes, ideal for specimen and match anglers.
It’s not just carp-filled pools at this mature fishery, with most lakes holding tench, roach and bream.
If running water is more for you, the club runs several miles of the River Dane. This rural, narrow river is great for going roving where bends, overhanging trees and little pools hold such fish as chub, barbel and grayling.
For the big-fish anglers, there are also plenty of pits and reservoirs, where you may not even see another angler.
New waters for this year include Knypersley Reservoir and the Sepentine at Knypersley. For the first time this season night fishing has been allowed at the Serpentine, where 30lb carp, 30lb pike and large bream exist.
