Water Name

Low Hills Pond

Description

The venue itself is a relatively small ornamental lake covering approx ½ to ¾ of an acre with a man made stone walled island to the far side of it Depths vary from approx 12” to 18” in the margins to around 4’ in the centre of the lake. The lake is well pegged with stone kerbing running around the entire circumference.

The water is fairly well coloured all year round, more so by the island where it appears to remain static. During the summer months there is an abundance of lily coverage to fish to although this is kept under control by the club. The colouration of the water ensures all year round sport but obviously the venue is harder in the winter months.

Most methods score well here with the pole and waggler being the favourites. Fishing the whip on light tackle and feeding little and often can account for decent catches of silver fish which can mostly be found around the island.

Species wise the water is heavily stocked with carp, chub, bream, skimmers, perch, roach, gudgeon and barbel which can be caught on all manner of baits such as maggot, sweetcorn, pellet, pinkies and worm.

Although being a small lake this venue has always been a popular spot with anglers young and old and can be quite busy during the summer months especially during the school holidays.Litter is kept to a minimum so long as anglers use the plentiful litterbins provided around the pond.

Unfortunately the venue is popular with duck feeding mothers and toddlers sometimes although numerous signs do request that bread not be thrown into the water.
