Spot­light on Eden Grange, River Calder, and top day-ticket lakes to fish now

IN 12 acres of stun­ning coun­try­side, Eden Grange Fish­ery of­fers fan­tas­tic fish­ing in tran­quil sur­round­ings.

If you en­joy catch­ing big bags of carp, head to the Match Lake, where pole fish­ing is the dom­i­nant tac­tic.

Most an­glers start the day fish­ing tight across to the far bank with mag­got or pel­let, while feed­ing a line down the mid­dle of the lake in the deeper wa­ter.

Un­usu­ally, some of the best match weights come out of this fish­ery as the weather gets colder, so don’t be put off by the re­cent drop in tem­per­a­ture.

Carp to 25lb can also be found in the Carp Lake, and these are best tar­geted us­ing boilies and fish­ery pel­lets as bait.

Feed a scat­ter­ing of loose of­fer­ings over each rod to get the carp search­ing around, then present a boilie hook­bait on a hair rig over the top.

The Cat­fish Lake is stocked with only cat­fish, and these have been caught to weights of nearly 30lb, mak­ing this the per­fect place to tar­get your first mog­gie.

Large hal­ibut pel­lets work very well. Be sure to present these on strong tackle, as fish­ery rules state that a min­i­mum of 17lb line and size 6 hooks are used.

Eden Grange also has a num­ber on-site fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing a small tackle shop where baits such as pel­lets can be bought, as well as hot food that can be de­liv­ered to your peg.

The fish­ery prides it­self on

its ex­cel­lent dis­abled ac­cess all across the com­plex, mak­ing it the per­fect place for any an­gler to spend a day. LO­CA­TION: Dale Road, Shildon, County Durham, DL4 2QD CON­TACT: 07809 125 205 or 07809 125 206 or info@ eden­grange­fish­
