Woodside pool is the most mature of the three pools on site. The pool was constructed back in 1997, and has been available to fish since 1999. The pool is stocked heavily with all major species of coarse fish but mainly carp and tench, with individuals reaching 29lb 8oz and 10lb 1oz respectively. Depths vary from 1.5ft to 12ft, with the average depth being between 3-4ft.
Woodside pool caters for both the amateur and experienced angler alike and fishes all year round. Good weights can be achieved on a variety of popular methods and baits making large match and pleasure weights a realistic possibility for any angler of any pedigree. The current match weight record stands at 186lb 12oz, caught on 19th August 2010 by Dave Bowyer from Gwen's Tackle.
Tried and tested methods include waggler or pole fished corn, meat and pellets (which are available to buy on site) tight in the margins or 3-5 metres out depending on the time of year. The key is to keep the bait going in! Larger carp and tench can be caught using a light feeder or straight bomb fished close to the island. However, most of the larger carp are caught on the surface during warm evenings using either floating bread or dog biscuits.
