AGREEMENT has been made between Lymm Angling Club and Chester Lakes for club members to enjoy access to all the waters in the commercial side of Chester Lakes.
At this present time it has five pools in total, with another shortly to be opened in the woods area.
In addition to the fishing, members may also use the facilities – which includes the café, the tackle shop and toilets.
Their main lake, Dodleston Pool, is heavily stocked with carp to 16lbs and because this is an eight-peg only carp lake members can book a peg via the tackle shop.
The other pools are free to members provided that there are no matches booked on the day.
The three main pleasure lakes are located next to each other just a short walk from the café and are stocked with similar ratios and sizes of silver fish and carp up to 16lbs.
These waters have between 22 and 26 pegs per pool.
A fourth pool, Wood Pool, is the furthest water from the café and can be found – as its name suggests – on the edge of the wood at the end of the track which runs past the three main lakes.
Although Wood Pool is smaller than the other waters with only 10 pegs, it is an interesting little pool with plenty of charm and character and well worth a visit.
Throughout the Chester Lakes site there are hard roadways which make most of the venue suitable for disabled anglers.
While three of the four existing pleasure lakes are what can only be described as exposed, a great deal of bank-side tree and shrub planting is being carried out to soften the landscape, including the planting of more than 2,500 birch, laurel, oak and beech trees.
In addition, thousands of spring bulbs have been planted.
The café is open from 7am seven days a week and serves a wide range of hot and cold food.
Next to the café, the tackle shop sells a range of tinned and packet baits, hooks, floats, weights, line and other accessories.
The addition of the new waters to Lymm AC’s portfolio has strengthened the partnership with Chester Lakes that started two years ago, when the club took over the former syndicate run Specimen Lake, which boasts some of the largest specimen carp, bream and eels in the north west.
Members of at least two years standing are permited to fish the Specimen Lake.
