About Blythe Waters
A mature, purpose-built fishery with five attractive lakes, set between the villages of Hampton-in-Arden and Knowle. A popular rural venue for match, pleasure and specimen carp fishing.
Two of our pools (Bridge Pool and Willow Pool) are primarily used for match fishing, with predominately match-sized carp, but also holding good stocks of bream, roach, perch and tench.
Cherries Pool is generally pleasure-fished, containing mixed fish species with fish from a few ounces to more than 18lb. The attraction of this pool is that you never know what you are going to catch when the float goes under.
Kingfisher pool is a small pool with very good stocks of small carp, bream and roach rudd and perch.
The final pool is Home Pool and the Fisheries’ specimen pool. The carp in here run to around 30lb and the pool is very popular with those looking to catch their biggest fish.
There are good facilities for disabled anglers, including a disabled toilet and a number of easily accessible pegs. The clubhouse serves hot and cold drinks, light meals and snacks. There are also toilet and shower facilities and space for five touring caravans (Caravan Club members only).
