New Water 

We have acquired a new still water fishery, named Slough House West.  As the name implies, it lies close to our existing Slough House fishery. 

The lake covers around 1.5 acres, has a small island, surrounding trees and reed beds and has a pretty uniform depth of about 3-5 feet.  Early reports are that the water contains a very good head of carp up to around mid doubles, lots of small roach, interspersed with some larger specimens, together with a few rudd and eels.

There are about 20 swims (though one is currently obstructed by a fallen tree). Some have platforms and please exercise care when using these as some of them have relatively narrow plank entrances. 

Fishing is allowed from 5 am to 10 pm and the water opens on July 1st

Access is down the track directly opposite our entrance to Slough House Farm, but on the other side of Scraley Road. Please be aware that you are entering a working farm – look out for chickens, dogs, tractors etc.  Follow the track passing farm sheds on your left for 100 yards, or so, until you see a MAS notice on a building directly in front of you.  Turn left between the farm sheds and then right at the end, where there is another MAS sign.  The lake is then immediately in front of you.  Turn left and park in the open area next to the lake.  We will arrange for a better defined parking area when the landowner has cleared more of the site.
