Have fished Willowside for about 3 months, have had good results on basic methods. Best so far, 15lb common from Top Lake. This venue comes highly recommended.

I visited the Willowside Fisheries and before arriving I rang Dennis, who was not only helpful, pleasant but was able to describe the most effective ways of catching. The fishing was truly amazing and I shall be visiting the fishery again this week.

Willowside is one of my local commercial fisheries, and as such I regularly fish
there. I also send, and advise, customers from my shop. Over the summer I visited Willowside weekly, and on my 'worst' day bag-up on a mixture of fish. The top lake is home to a good head of Carp, and has good head of silver fish, Roach and Rudd. The lower lake also has a good head of Carp, but is a harder lake to fish, in fact I had my p.b. Carp on the pole from here, 9lb 8oz.
For a good days sport, or as a beginner, you can't go wrong at Willowside.
