Fisherwick Lakes to increase coarse prices from May 1

Fisherwick Lakes is to increase its coarse angling prices from May 1 following major improvements to the fishery.

Fishery manager Peter Jackson said: "Its been a very long time since we increased our fishing rates, in fact some prices that were set go back to 1997! A lot of major improvements over the last four years since I started my second term here have happened. We have developed a new trout lake, a new runswater, a new match pool, Bridge and Ripples pools, a new fishing lodge and extended car parking to name a few! We also have invested in total new stock in a lot of our pools, not to mention more specimen carp and catfish.

...the River Arrow hits the target...

A slow moving stretch of the Arrow at WixfordWarwickshire's River Arrow (left) has to rank as one of the prettiest stretches of moving water in the Midlands with weir pools, fast moving shallow stretches and deeper slow flowing glides and pools.

Differing in character, the Wixford stretch near Ragley Hall offers a half mile stretch which will appeal to barbel and silver fish anglers whilst the mile long stretch near the parish church in Studley is smaller but full of fish and offers some cracking angling for those who like to roam from swim to swim.

News bites...

Regular Open Matches open to all anglers are to be held every Saturday until December on Pixley and Willow Pools in Herefordshire with pegs bookable in advance on a first come first serve basis.

Staffordshire's Pool House Farm near Tamworth has introduced a £5.00 concessionary day ticket for anglers aged over 65. It has also dropped its ban on the use of groundbait, pellets and the Method feeder.

Worcestershire's Furnace Mill Fishery has introduced a two rod ticket at a cost of £10.00 and relaxed some of its rules on groundbait. Anglers can now use groundbait as long as it is Marukyu or Old Ghost whether bought from the fishery or from local tackle dealers.

Following an increase in the number of Eastern European anglers visiting the venue, Kingsbury Water Park has now published a set of its rules in Polish.
