About the venue
This is a very well stocked water with carp, tench, crucians, rudd, roach and chub.
These three small ponds situated near Verwood are the ideal water for youngsters to learn and for the pleasure angler to have good catches in picturesque surroundings. Plenty of marginal lilly beds and an island in each lake provide plenty of features to target.
Fish up to 20lb are present, but there are plenty of doubles and single figure fish which give a good account of themselves and provide excellent sport on lighter rods and tackle. There is also a successful survival rate for the naturally spawned fish in these ponds and quite often stocky sized fish and smaller can be caught fishing match tactics.
On the whole, commons are the predominant strain of fish, although there are some good mirrors and ghost carp are also present.
These waters are used to stock our bigger carp waters and have seen successful weights reached by our fish that were stocked in past years. For this reason, we do not like to see people using too heavy tackle ( lines, hooks and leads) and would ask members to give a little thought to how heavy they fish on these ponds.
Crucian carp are also resident in these ponds with fish in excess of 3lb.
This is a day water only and night fishing is not available on this water.
