Whitmore fishing Lakes
We currently have 13 waters from which to fish, Whitmore caters for all Anglers, so whatever standard you consider yourself to be, there is something here for you. So don't be put off if you're a beginner, there are at least two lakes which are perfect for you. Talk to Ricky or Gary when you arrive, and they will point you in the right direction.
ISLAND POND- This is a small-secluded water with an island to one side, ideal to fish to on a pole. The overhanging branches make it difficult to fish to on a rod and line but a feeder round the back of the island is a good option. Large carp are taken mainly from the rear of the island or on the surface against the tall trees.
EAST LAKE There are various methods to learn on this lake. An accurate plumb up and a steady feed pattern should give you bites all day! Nevertheless, be warned, with the hard fighting barbel, your rod could be dragged.
THE DOUGHNUT Very smilar to the East Lake, but with the added bonus of a centre which, if you can get close enough with a float or feeder will give you another option to fish on
THE BASIN - Large pleasure bags can be achieved from this water. It is a difficult water to learn especially without advice, but can be very rewarding when you have mastered the technique of the sloping bottom hence THE BASIN.
MATCH CANAL - Large stocks of small fish here with the added bonus fish. It is a 17 peg oval water 10 metres wide. Fish to the far side, tight against the bank on the deck or come mid-water and fish up in the water on castor or pellet. This lake is the main one for all fishing matches and will be located near the cafe.
LODGE POOL Good up in the water fishing, also against the island. A good water reserved for pleasure fishing only. This water is close to the café and car park, ideally suited if one of your party wants to sit in the cafe and watch.
CLUB CANAL -A bite a chuck on maggot, castor or pinkie feeding the same. Larger carp can be taken on pellet or sweetcorn. This canal is designed for the club angler with a maximum 10-metre pole, but is equally suited to the pleasure angler on rod and line.
LILY POND A small picture postcard water with large pole breaking carp. What can I say! If you want to test your skills this is the water. Fish the margins, far bank or centre track all of which produce good weights. No large bags.
