Poachers Pool is approximately 4 acres in size and contains a mixture of original and more recently-stocked carp. Recent test fishing has produced several fish to 35lb. We believe the lake contains about 15 fish over 30lb with the majority of others being between 20 and 30lb.

The lake is available for group bookings of up to 3 anglers for 48, 96 or 144 hours duration. Bookings start on Monday, Wednesday or Friday From 11:00am.

Poaches Pool is believed to have been dug in the early sixties and was used for angling until the early nineties at which point it was closed and used as a holding pond for fish moved from other lakes on site destroyed when extractions started. During the period Poachers Pool was closed, the lake was poached and it is believed some fish moved which makes it difficult to estimate what was left of the original stock. You may have already guessed but this is how Poachers Pool got its name.

The estimated stock for Poachers Pool today (November 2015) is 70-90 carp to upper 30’s – but who knows what surprises this lake may throw up from the original stock.
