Admirals Walk is a quiet 25 acre open gravel pit with natural banks and informal swims. There are numerous underwater features including gravel bars, and gullies and dense submerged weed beds. This fishery is a Day Only venue.
Formally a Pike water, the majority of anglers fishing Admirals Walk have targeted the specimen Carp, which range from 10–40lb+. The water contains a good head of Tench, Bream and Eels.
Find the gaps in the year-round weed beds, particularly clear areas, gravel bars and shelves. In summer, the Carp can be found cruising in the quiet corners of the lake.
Standard Carp tactics will produce results on this low pressured venue but keep off the skyline as much as possible and keep disturbance to a minimum. Regular baiting can bring rewards. Crayfish are present so air-dried and imitation baits are a must to resist their attentions.
Angling is from dawn to dusk only. ‘Bait’ fishing for Pike is only allowed between 1 October and 31 March, however the use of lures is permitted all year round. Live baits must be caught from the venue. Night fishing is not allowed and day tickets are not available for this site. Permit holders may use a maximum of three rods.
NB – access around the lake can be difficult due to excess water, muddy terrain and uneven surfaces.
This is a day only permit fishery
This fishery does not have an allocated formal car park. Being dropped off and picked up at Admirals Walk is advised.
