Its my pleasure to announce the acquisition of yet another new water on behalf of Lymm angling club. The following was published by the fisheries manager on the clubs website yesterday;
I am pleased to announce that the club have obtained exclusive fishing rights To Oasis Pool situated on the very popular Hampton Springs Fishery. This arrangement will commence on the 1st March 2016 and will facilitate free fishing to the member ONLY. There may be an odd occasion where this pool has been pre-booked in which case if that occurs Lymm members will have free fishing on one of the complex other pools. Members must familiarise themselves with the on site fishery rules and bait restrictions and MUST at all times follow any directions given by the owner or his staff. There are sign directions to the pool on site as well as the usual catch box. The fishery has a very good up to date web site for those of you who want to see what it is all about. I have known the owners for many years and I hope that this may be the start of a long arrangement . Please do not let your club down and enjoy the privilege!
The following is removed from Hampton springs website
For a more secluded and quiet situation it is worth trying this 15 peg, half acre lake set behind Alice Springs. It has a separate car park with close proximity to pegs. This is a good pole lake as every peg has an island to fish to at 12-15m. Stocked with generally smaller fish than some of the other more mature match lakes, this water is probably ideally suited for the beginner or as a match venue for some of the smaller angling clubs.
There is a good head of silver fish in this lake with plenty of skimmers, rudd and roach. Chub have also been stocked in large numbers with some up to 1.5lbs in weight. Mirror and common carp can reach up to 8lbs with the average in the region of 2-3lbs. Barbel to 5lbs, crucians to 1lb, green tench and some very nice golden tench are also stocked. Best baits are pellets, sweetcorn, luncheon meat and because of the large numbers silver fish maggots, castors and worm.
The full address for the fishery is
Hampton Springs Fishery
