Chestnut Pool Carp Lake



“Chestnut” as it has become affectionately known is an outstanding mixed fishery which offers 1 st class sport for all anglers from beginners to expert. Regularly featured in the angling press and listed in the Angling Times top 50 day ticket venues in the UK .


The lake of 3 acres has a large stock but is no means just carp water. If you wish to target carp we have fish from singles to upper twenties, or if you fancy something different our famous golden tench are stunning and are often caught from the margins along with big road, rudd, perch, bream and crucians. Chestnut Pool regularly attracts the big names in the sport.


The fishery is open 7 days a week, from March to November from 7am till dusk or 21.00 hours which ever is earliest and during December to March 7.30 am till dusk


Every Tuesday until the 31 July the lake closes at 4.30 to hold our  Fox Summer League matches.


Please follow these rules for the safety of the fish and environment. No fixed feeders, barbless hooks only (size 8 max), no leads over 2oz, no braided main lines, only branded carp/coarse pellets. All nets and unhooking mats are supplied leaving your rod licence as a deposite. No litter, or dogs and only one non angling guest per angler, Thanks.


If Carp are your preferred quarry then standard ledgering or feeder tactics work best with catches of over 30 fish a day common place.


The main stock of carp are on average mirrors and commons between 5lbs and 10lbs there there are also hundreds of double's with a good head of 20's .
