Fishery Information

Willow Garth fishery is a well established fishery that has been producing good fishing for more than twenty years now but in recent years it has suffered from neglect becoming very overgrown both with weed in the water as well as on the bankside covering the pegs. A few years ago local matchman, Stuart Ward acquired the rights to the fishery and has slowly but surely turned it into one of the jewels of the regions fisheries. The banks have been cleared, proper fishing platforms have been installed in most of the pegs and the overgrown weed problems have been sorted out.
The quality of the fishing has proved to be revelation as well, particularly the silver fish sport with 20 and 30 pound weights commonplace in the matches all year round topped by a weight of over fifty pounds of roach last winter. The fishery is also renowned for its big carp with fish to close to thirty pounds having been recorded and Stuart has started work on digging out a third lake for commercial type carping sometime in the future.
There are two well established lakes on the fishery offering a total of 40 to 45 pegs, both containing good stocks of quality roach that have been caught to over 2lb, as well as huge quantities of small roach and rudd, perch, tench a few bream and golden orfe and carp to over 20lb.
