Information

Archers’ Pool is one of Arden Fishery’s six lakes, all holding mixed stocking suited to a variety of fishing styles and so are ideal for fishing in the warmer summer weather and targeting the good numbers of silverfish in the colder winter months on the more sheltered lakes.

For many years Ernie Archer was the fishery bailiff and helped to create this one-acre pool which carries his name. Archer’s Pool fishes well throughout the year as it contains a large number of silverfish plus a good number of carp. It is an ideal pole venue, having a central island and a maximum depth of seven feet on the bank above Orchard Lake, and an even four feet around the sides of the island.

The biggest fish in Archers’ Pool are the carp which average about 3lbs, with the occasional fish to 8lbs. The bream vary from 12oz to 2lbs, and other fish include roach to1lb, perch to a similar size and the occasional large crucian carp. There are also a few barbel which provides some excitement on light tackle. In the summer feeder fishing to the island works well, as does float fishing in the margin. Good winter silverfish sport can be found in the deeper water. Most baits will work on this pool with the most popular being maggots, casters and worms followed by sweetcorn and pellets.

Facilities on site include ample parking in the central car park, The Clubhouse which offers hot and cold refreshments, bait and terminal tackle. The Clubhouse also has the fishery toilets which remain open all day. All are welcome to fish and families can enjoy a quiet day in a safe environment. The fishery is open 7 days a week throughout the year and day ticket anglers with a valid ticket can start fishing on arrival. Being close to Stratford-upon-Avon access to the fishery is very easy from the A46.
