Holtwood Pools

This 3 pool complex has been completely re-developed as a tench and crucian fishery over the past few years. There are no carp present at this idyllic venue. Extensive works have created a secure car park, wildlife fencing and excellent platforms on each pool. Access is excellent for all with many swims wheelchair friendly.

Miller’s Pool – Predominantly a tench venue with fish over 6lb already being reported. It also contains pure strain crucians, roach and perch.

Bascombe’s Pool – Stocked to offer more action in the colder months, this is a ‘silverfish’ water with a good head of chub, roach, rudd, bream and perch present. The latter to over 2lb.

Shambles – A pure strain crucian venue with tench and roach also present. Depths range from 4 to 8 feet, but generally it’s pretty even all around the pools. A great venue to float fish, the absence of carp makes heavy tackle unnecessary.
