The fish­ery, made up of one lake and a 200yard stretch of the River Dou­glas, has seen re­cent nets to 200lb of carp, cru­cians, chub to 5lb, tench to 5lb, bream, rudd, roach and perch.

The lake is where all of the ac­tion is, with an­glers catch­ing well on the Method feeder with meat, corn or pel­lets to take carp from 4lb-7lb ev­ery cast. If you pre­fer qual­ity sil­ver­fish and some plump cru­cians, you can be se­lec­tive with your tac­tics and en­joy a net of these too. Most of the big­ger cru­cians are com­ing out to an­glers fish­ing meat close to the lily beds.

The fish­ery has re­cently in­stalled so­lar lights in the swims for those who want to tar­get some of the pool’s big­ger lumps to over 20lb at night.

If you like river fish­ing, the stretch of the Dou­glas is worth a visit. There are chub, trout, roach, bar­bel, dace and even salmon in this nar­row sec­tion, which suits most meth­ods.
