General information

Of our nine fantastic and beautiful lakes, three are available for day ticket fishing. Our other lakes are for residents and members and occcasional club matches which are prebooked. Docklow Pools is possibly the oldest fishery in the country, starting trading day ticket fishing since 1972.

The lakes are general coarse fishing, stocked with carp up to 20lbs, tench, roach, rudd, barbel, chub, perch, bream and the odd eel.

Day tickets are able to fish the:

  • Mickey Mouse
  • Moby Dick
  • Figure of Eight

Please note Day tickets can not fish any other lake including our Rivers,Major Bill and Match Lakes. Membership is available if you are fishing regularly here and known to Docklow staff, at just £70 (£50 for seniors) including VAT, fishing then as often as one likes on the syndicate waters.

As its a day ticket water, there is no need to book or reserve. Its 1st come 1st served. Our guests and members can fish day ticket waters too. We believe these three lakes are superb for a days quality fishing and that’s shared by hundreds of anglers and high profile Fishing journalists across the country.

“Be sure of a bite” – Our bar and restaurant is available after a hard days fishing lunchtimes and evenings. Breakfasts available also (call 01568760256 to book if required)
