Description

Recently under new management, this fishery has 4 pools: Horseshoe Lake, Arrow Lake, House Pool and Harrys Pool.

Details

The Horseshoe Lake
At just under two acres this is the largest lake within the fishery. The newly formed and planted island, surrounded by trees and reeds, makes the fishing experience most pleasurable

36 timber fishing pegs, ideal for pleasure fishing or matches.

The lake contains a variety of carp species average 3lbs up to 15lbs. An extensive restocking programme in 2009 included mixed silver fish - roach, rudd, bream, tench and crucian carp.

A further restocking programme continues in 2010.

Open matches take place throughout the year on this lake. The top weights in 2009 were caught by James Turner, 90lbs and Chris Bradney 87lbs.

DISABLED FISHING AND TOILETS ARE AVAILABLE ON THIS LAKE.

The Arrow Lake
At just over 1.5 acres the winding, tree and reed lined Arrow Lake is Alvechurch Fisheries prime location for specimen fishing.

Only 10 timber pegs have been recently constructed in order to provide an exciting and ‘exclusive’ fishing experience - only those with proven experience and the required equipment will be permitted to fish.

The fish stocks have been carefully selected and include carp weighing up to 28lbs.

Bookings must be made via Mark Olds at least 24 hours prior to fishing. No exceptions.

DISABLED FISHING AND TOILETS ARE AVAILABLE ON THIS LAKE.

The House Pool
21 newly constructed timber fishing pegs surround this pretty tree lined pool. The River Arrow on one side and the other over looking open fields provides a wonderful outlook of the English countryside. This makes for an ideal place for pleasure fishing or a small match booking (up to 12 people).

Fish stocks are varied and include carp up to 19lbs, Roach to just over 3lbs, perch (recently caught 1.6lbs), tench (recently caught 7.2lbs) and bream (up to 8lbs).

DISABLED FISHING AND TOILETS ARE AVAILABLE ON THIS LAKE.

Harry's Pool
Harrys Pool has been completely refurbished during 2009 and is primarily for juniors and novices.

9 timber pegs have been constructed, along with a conservation area to protect the water voles that are the main inhabitants, along with the fish!

The pool will be restocked during Winter 2009 and early 2010, to include carp, crucian carp, tench, roach and perch.

DISABLED FISHING AND TOILETS ARE AVAILABLE ON THIS LAKE.

Good for method feeding

Good place but you can never get on good pools because they always have matches on them

mozlongtime

A very well looked after venue with some cracking fish including large carp & tench, the Horseshoe pool is the favourite but it does tend to be booked for matches most weekends so phone ahead.
