Heron Pool

GRF Angling update January 2021

We are in the middle of a fishery management project which will see more consistent catches and improvement of the sport on all three fisheries.
We have had a major tidy up of the banks and around the islands in Mallard Lake, trimmed up the lily beds and we are in the process of removing some of the excess silver fish.
This will allow the Tench and Carp to thrive and be caught on more regular basis.
Heron Pool is also undergoing a bankside tidy up and work will start on swim maintenance in the near future.
Kingfisher Pond is now a part of the EA scheme to reintroduce genuine Crucian Carp to the fishing landscape. We have removed all other Carp from this lake and stocked Crucians, Tench and Rudd to create a lovely float fishery, just like Mr Crabtree used to fish.

About The Lake

Heron Pool is a small purpose built fishery, originaly a final growing-on pond is now a super little water. It is approximately 3/4 acre in size and is stocked with some superb Carp, Tench and Bream. You really will enjoy fishing it.

With seven swims (three double platforms) on the water the fishery is never crowded with anglers.

The fishery is the focal point of our holiday lodges, Seasonal pitches and C&CC CL'.
Our guests enjoy the a chance to fish during their stay, or just relax with the view over water, there is something about taking it easy by the waterside and just watching the wildlife about their business.

The stock is a mixture of

Carp to 15lb

Tench to 4lb

Bream to 4lb

And a few Wels Catfish to 14lb

Site Fishing Log

Unlike most other fisheries we have a log book for the fishing which everyone is encouraged to fill in and make comments. This means you can see exactly how the fishery is performing on arrival and not be a recipent of the old phrase, "Oh! you should have been here last week it fished its head off, but this week it's gone very quiet".

Season Permits

We have an angling group of 20 members who are able to purchase annual permits to be able to fish all the lakes anytime, and also to night fish Mallard Lake.
The season permit cost is 200, we currently run a waiting list for any permits which become available.
You will undergo a rigorous vetting process prior to acceptance but we can assure you it will be worth it.
