Spring Pool has grass carp [to 28lb], carp [to 26lb], perch [to over 4lb], bream [to 3lb 8oz], roach [to 2lb 6oz] and rudd [to 1lb 4oz]. Many of the fish in Spring Pool have never been caught before and basic baits like maggot, caster or pellet will score well.

Long Pool has carp [to 18lb] as well as coarse fish similar to Sping Pool. Successful tactics are similar also to those on Spring Pool.

Carp Pool has catfish [to over 40lb], grass carp [to 27lb], carp [to 23lb], and tench [to 8lb]. Try legering large chunks of luncheon meat or bunches of lobworm for the catfish. Carp fall for surface fished bread crust, pellets or chum mixers. Fish to the far bank under the overhanging brambles. For the tench, try float fished red maggot or redworm over loose feed.

Top Pool holds carp [to over 21lb], bream [to over 4lb], tench, roach and crucians. Top Pool, is ideally suited to diasbled anglers. Try float fished corn, maggot, caster or soft pellets for all species. The best pegs tend to be those opposite the island.
