As a club committed to constantly being on the lookout for new waters for it’s members, Lymm AC are pleased to announce the acquisition of three new venues for 2015! All three of the new venues have already been included on the Lymm website and you can find direction details for them in the online version of the mapbook.
The first water is ‘Kitas Pool’ at Tarvin Sands Fishery near Chester.
Kitas Pool is a shallow, one acre pool set in a reindeer centre and a five pool fishery. Members have exclusive use of ‘Kitas Pool’ which is fenced off and has a gated entrance secured with a club padlock, the catch returns and box is located inside the pool entrance. The pool contains carp, bream, roach, perch, gudgeon and tench and as its new to the club for 2015, probably a few surprises too! In addition to club rules, the water specific rules are barbless hooks only and no groundbait. Facilities include a tackle shop, toilets and a cafe serving hot and cold food.
Heading east out of Chester along the A54 Tarvin Road, pass through Tarvin Sands and after a mile turn left off Kelsall Road (A54) into Tarvin Sands Fishery, the car park is located to the right of the entrance.

Next up, is an addition to the already impressive stretch of the River Severn at Llandrinio.
New for 2015, over a mile of this superb river, upstream of the bridge has been added to our already extended stretch downstream of the road bridge, with both stretches being easily accessible. This length of the River Severn provides good fishing as soon as you reach the river. Chub, large barbel, roach, perch and dace are the main species for the coarse angler, with grayling and trout providing sport for the game angler. salmon are not uncommon along this stretch of the Severn.
Directions: Driving south along the A489/A5 at Oswestry, head for Welshpool. Continue past Llanymynech to Four Crosses then turn left onto the B4393 and drive through Llandrinio. Continue past the Punch Bowl public house and for the downstream stretch turn left just before the road bridge over the river. Follow this road for 100m and turn right at the signpost for Haimwood. After the first farm park either tight against the fence on the short track on the right leading up to the field at the mid way point or continue for another 150m around the right hand bend and park on the right against the field wall just beyond the second farm. Access to the river is via a gate at the mid way point or a stile on the opposite side of the road to the farm. For the upstream stretch above the road bridge limited parking is available in the lay-by on the left just before the bridge (postcode SY22 6SG) then on foot head to the right following the Shropshire Way public footpath to access the river.

Lastly, we are please to announce the acquisition of a new stretch of the River Vyrnwy at Melynoig Fawr.
A new stretch of the Vyrnwy for 2015 containing barbel, chub and trout. The overhanging trees on the far bank will provide plenty of cover for chub in the summer months and there are fast flowing sections, as well as deeper pools to be found on this superb stretch of river. The lower half is good for trotting in many places, whilst the many Alder and Willow lined pegs provide good stalking locations, pike anglers will also find some decent specimens. In addition, salmon are reported to have frequented this ¾ mile long stretch.
Driving south towards Oswestry, follow the signs for Welshpool. Continue past Llanymynech to Four Crosses then turn right onto the B4393 and drive approximately 3 miles to Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain. You will cross a bridge over the Vyrnwy and turn right onto the A495 and drive approximately 1 mile until the road bends right with some stone buildings on your left, turn left just after the buildings onto Lletty Lane, follow this track for 400m and take the next right, entrance to the farm is on the right 20m down the track, proceed through the entrance gate and park in the farm yard ensuring you do not block access to the out buildings and you have closed the main gate. Proceed on foot through the small gate on the right of the farm yard and then through the larger gate on your left and straight ahead until you reach the river. Warning!! The hill is very steep by the gate so take care particularly when it’s wet.
