Stone Arch Fisheries New Water
Stone arch fisheries is now offering anglers the opportunity to fish two stunning lakes in the heart of Shropshire. Having been originally dug out in the 1700s, these waters have been run as match waters for the last 30 years. Over this time the match fishing seen on waters of this size had declined. With many if not all of the smaller fish being decimated by cormarants. The lakes were left with only the larger fish resident. In 2012 I took control of the 10 acre lake transforming it over a period of time and restocking with carp. These fish Have thrived in the lake and many of these fish are now 20 plus with larger fish coming through all the time. In 2016 I acquired the fishing rights to the sister lake. In 2017 this was made part of the same ticket. At 20 acres in size it will be a stand out water for the Shropshire area. Not having been night fished since the late 1960s it is a rare chance to fish for the unknown!! Members will have the chance to fish for uncaught carp on this 20 acre estate lake. The sky is the limit regarding the fishing, we have a stocking policy in place with fish stocked late 2017 and more on order ready to stock late 2018. The first challenge, will be to find out what surprises the fishery has in store. With stories of past 40lb carp being caught. Anything is possible. The lake also holds a small amount of double figure Tench and beam. Although the lakes sit side by side on the same water coarse the lakes are separated and will remain this way, this will give the anglers the opportunity to fish the west lake, which over time will be regularly stocked to keep it as more prolific, and the east lake that will be kept low stock. Giving anglers the best of both worlds in there carp fishing.
