Tips

Sam Hubbard

Go when it's hot to surface fish Don't fish on the bottom in hot weather as you will blank!!! The fish here are good size and are beautifully colored especially the commons that are all dark due to the clear water!!!

Sam Hubbard

This is not a water for artificial man made baits the fish in here are mostly natural apart from some carp which were stocked a few years ago. If you are lucky you might catch one of the original dark commons that used to solely inhabit this pond naturally. I have only ever had 3 of the originals they are in the pictures section at my PB from this pond 8.5 lb dark common And two 7lb dark commons all the stocked fish were mirror carp!!!
