Margin fishing is a popular method in the summer. Fishing at around 8m on the bottom becomes effective in the cooler months. Pellets, paste and bread work well, as does sweetcorn and meat baits. Fishing maggots in the summer will bring regular bites from the Roach.
Fishing is limited from 6.00 am. – 10.00 pm. or dusk (which ever is the earliest)
PLEASE NOTE No toilet currently exists at this water following a second bout of vandalism.
