Immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of Docklow Pools, an paradise for anglers, nestled within a lush 100-acre valley.

Our distinct fishing pools are the heart of Docklow, each a serene haven where the water whispers tales of the one that got away.

The crown jewel is Major Bill, a sprawling 7-acre expanse teeming with diverse aquatic life, including the legendary 67lb catfish. This is only for residents to enjoy.

Each pool is cradled by nature, offering not just a fishing spot, but a place to connect with the outdoors, rekindle your passion for angling, and perhaps compete with fellow enthusiasts.

Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a curious novice, Docklow’s lakes offer a picturesque backdrop for unforgettable fishing adventures.



There is a nice mixture of barbel fishing and grayling trotting style. All are private and in beautiful peaceful countryside. The cost is included in your weekly ticket so there isn’t anything more to pay too.

There is no Day ticket option. Its residents or Members (Membership details contact the tackle shop on 01568 760544).



We will explain if you are after concrete platforms and easy access then Docklow River stretches are not suitable for you.

All the stretches are strimmed out pegs in June ready for new season. Some pegs are difficult to get to, and most pegs involve a walk.
