New Match Pool at Kingsbury Water Park
Following an extensive redevelopment, Causeway Pool at Kingsbury Water Park is now available to clubs as a match pool.
The change means there is now a second choice of match pool at the fishery, giving angling clubs further options on the number of pegs they can use and the ease with which members can fish.
Until now only the 11-acre Swann Pool has been available for matches, with bookings taken for 15, 25 or 40 pegs. The opening of the smaller four-acre Causeway Pool as a competition venue gives match secretaries the option of using 20 pegs and the opportunity for easier fishing.
Causeway’s redevelopment has changed the levels of the water and has introduced a gravel bar, running the opposite way to the island, making it a great feature to fish to at about 30 yards from the bank. The pool now varies in depth from three to eight feet and is well stocked with carp to 10lbs, pike to 20lbs, tench to 5lbs, roach, skimmers, perch, and rudd.
A number of new fishing platforms have also been added (left), with four accessible to wheelchairs users. These four pegs can be used by able-bodied anglers but must be vacated if a wheelchair angler arrives and wishes to use the peg.
On days when there is no match booked, day ticket anglers will be able to use the water on a £2.50 day ticket, or use the great value Day Ticket Water annual permit (£40 for the year; half price for juniors, OAPs and disabled badge holders). A further bonus for anglers at Kingsbury is that all the day ticket waters are now open all year round – making the annual permits even better value for money.
