About Ackers Pit

Ackers Pit in Cheshire is a small fishery owned by a club in Stockton Heath, about 2 miles south of Warrington. It’s a nice spot that locals like to visit for fishing.

In 2007, the pit underwent some big changes. It was drained, cleaned out, and the landscape was improved. New fishing spots were built, and the fishery was restocked. It reopened in 2009.

Although it’s been cleaned out, Ackers Pit is still shallow. It used to be a great place to catch roach, and the club is working to bring back that reputation. They’ve stocked the lake with roach, perch, bream, rudd, crucian carp, tench, and recently added around 200 mirror carp that weigh about 2.5 pounds each.

Fishing at Ackers Pit is pretty easy. Just use simple float fishing techniques with light gear. Maggots, casters, bread, and corn are all good baits to use.
