Stock: Bream, Carp, Crucian, Perch and Roach




The biggest fish in Archers’ Pool are the carp which average about 4lbs, 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.
