About Brereton Pool

Brereton Pool in Cheshire is a 14 acre lake that used to be a sand quarry. It’s located in a country park and is known for its clear water and lack of weeds. The lake has varying depths, from a few feet to over 30 feet. It is important to carefully map out the lake to find the best spots for fishing, as there are bars, silt beds, and gravel patches that can be great for catching fish. The lake is home to some beautiful common and mirror carp, with some reaching weights of over 29lb. The fish are strong fighters and like to hide in the deep margins when hooked. There are rumors of even bigger fish in the lake, possibly over 30lb. The average size of the fish is around 16-18lb, with a good number of fish over 20lb. In addition to carp, there are also roach, perch, tench, bream, and pike in the lake. Day tickets can be purchased on the bank for £2.50 per rod, but anglers can only fish during park hours and cannot fish certain swims reserved for Society members. Day ticket anglers must follow all Society rules. There are two disabled-friendly swims with wheelchair access.
