Valley Pool (re-opened, but please report all catches or blanks)

Valley pool will be available to fish by all members from 1st September 2019. In order to reopen this water during the 2019 season a considerable amount of maintenance work has been undertaken and we thank the many volunteers who have helped this happen. In readiness for the reopening there has been a recent stocking of fish.

Another mixed fishery that’s set in lovely surroundings and in a sheltered location, as it’s name suggests, in a valley.

Depths vary from 3 feet to over 10 feet in some places and fishing is from the recently installed and renewed pegs only.

Access to the water is via the new bridge over the brook only, do not attempt to access the water from any other direction. From Jimmies car park drive over the cattle grid and turn left onto the track between Jimmies pool and Goldies pool. Follow this, pass the gate at the end of Jimmies( do not enter) and a small wood on the left, to a patch of hard standing which is the new Valley car park. The bridge is clearly visible from the car park.
