The Bridge Pond
The bridge pond is our 30 peg pleasure fishing pond. It’s shaped attractively in a figure of 8 formation with 2 separate islands. The pond has a 3’ shelf around the pond as a feature.
And has a maximum depth of about 6’. It has lots of bank space and all 30 pegs are linked by a gravel path. This pond has the most amount of variety, there are large quantities of Crucian, F1 Mirror, Common and Ghost Carp. To complement the Carp are Bream, Tench, Barbel and Roach.
The past 2 years has seen fish that were stocked at 4 lb in 2006 weighed in at 12lb - 16lb. These fish are on the feed all the time which provides great sport and some serious bags!!.
Rules for the bridge pond can be found on the entrance from the car park onto the lake.
THERE IS NOW A 70LB KEEPNET LIMIT!

Top tips from our Coach!
Summer: This pond fishes similar to the
match pond, pellet has been the top bait for
years. Banded pellet has been the top method
this summer, but with so much variety you can fish
all sorts of methods. Paste works well down the edge,
the two islands attract fish so use a method feeder tight
to the island with method mix and meat for good catches. You can also use bread or fish up in the water with pellet or castor/maggot.
Winter: The bridge fishes amazing through the winter. You can even catch shallow, it will take longer to get them feeding. Pellet and sweetcorn on the deck is another method put to good use through the winter and generally fishing this way will attract bigger fish. Also maggot feeder and waggler to the islands can be a winner!
