Silvers sport hotting up at Cleveley
THE big carp sport may be slowing down now but anglers are enjoying plenty of action from Cleveley Bridge’s silverfish pools.
The Lancashire fishery has three lakes – a specimen pool (Swanbrook) and two silverfish and carp pools, Canal and Serpentine. It is on the latter where pleasure anglers have been bagging up.
Serpentine is arguably the better of the two, with fairly easy fishing.
The 15-peg, doughnut-shaped lake is consistently restocked with bream and roach, of which bags to over 30lb are a possibility.
The central island is only around 5m out and anglers often fish tight to it in the cooler months with maggots or chopped worm.
The Canal Pool is a 40-peg pleasure pool containing carp averaging 4lb-6lb, plus bream, tench, chub, roach, rudd, barbel and perch. The lake is around 16m wide and fishes well for carp on the pole or Method feeder cast tight to the far bank. Most species can
be caught on small baits from anywhere on this lake.
PRICES: £6 a day on the bank, £8 for two rods, £10 for three. Specimen fishing is £10 a day or £20 for 24 hours
