Charlie's Pool is the latest addition to Woodside Fishery opening in May 2011. The pool was originally excavated for the growth and development of koi carp and other ornamental fish. However, due to a change in direction, the pool has now been stocked with carp, F1's, roach, rudd, skimmer bream and perch.
Carp have already been caught to nearly 20lbs, perch to over 2lbs as well as some very good quality roach also featuring in pleasure catches.
The pool has been designed specifically with the pleasure angler in mind. The pool caters for approximately fifteen anglers and, for the most part, will not be match fished.
Depths vary from 2.5-10ft with the average depth being between 4-6ft. The deeper water is found towards the far end nearest the woods with the bottom dropping away very steeply. The shallower water can be found directly in-front of the cabin development.
As well as catering for pleasure anglers, Charlie's pool will also cater for disabled anglers via a purpose-built raised decked area just outside the cabins allowing for easy wheelchair access to the pool. This area will only be available to pleasure anglers if the cabins with wheelchair access are vacant. This is a future development and, therefore, the facility is not available at present. However, be sure to check our news page for any developments.
Although now open to the public, Charlie's pool is still very much in it's infancy with more development planned for the near future. Charlie's pool has been many years in the making and we firmly believe this will soon become one of the finest pools available to fish on the complex.
