Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

IF YOU want a big-carp fish­ing ex­pe­ri­ence this week­end, look no fur­ther than Mil­ton Pools.

Es­tab­lished just over 70 years ago, the venue is a lit­tle-known Ox­ford­shire jewel for novice and ex­pe­ri­enced an­glers alike.

Set in a de­light­ful lo­ca­tion near Ox­ford city, the venue com­prises six lakes which of­fer ev­ery­thing from tran­quil plea­sure fish­ing to spec­i­men big-carp angling.

For big carp and cat­fish there is the Spec­i­men Lake, which also of­fers night fish­ing with bivvy al­ter­na­tives in the form of Swedish-style cab­ins.

For gen­eral coarse fish­ing and the chance of a stun­ning mixed net of fish there is the House Pool. This lake has carp to 22lb along with most other still­wa­ter species – ev­ery­thing from tench to perch and orfe.

Angling clubs are also wel­comed on site with the op­por­tu­nity to book some of the fish­ery’s other mixed stock pools such as Len’s and Camp­bell’s match lakes.

Elec­tron­i­cally-con­trolled gates op­er­ate be­tween 7pm and 7.30am. Most of the pegs are suit­able for dis­abled an­glers. PRICES: £7 one rod, £10 for two, un­der-16s £5, £12 for overnight
