Work will begin Sunday 8th Jan to open up several pegs and then we can start to fish this fantastic water once your membership has been upgraded and a site induction has been completed. Existing member will be required to pay an additional £10, £5 for OAP’s/concessions.  We are a non profit club so this small increase is to help cover the cost and we believe will prove excellent value once you start to fish the reservoir. For new memberships please refer to the membership page.

We have had limited access to the water but we can confidently say it really is a special place. Not only is it set in beautiful surroundings, the fishing is top quality and unspoilt as it has been a fly fishery for the past 30 years. Silver fishing is up there amongst the best we have experienced and it’s backed up with trout and specimen carp. Bream are present and there are reports of Pike, Theroux trout and Tench. Sizes are unknown but we do know they all go to specimen sizes and we are sure some special fish reside in this un-tapped reservoir. We can’t wait to start getting catch reports back from our members to see what surprises it holds !


We are pleased to announce that we carrbrook angling club have managed to secure a lease on walkerwood reserviour. The reservoir is 30 acers in size and is loaded with corse fish to specimen sizes. It’s been a trout fishery for the last 30 years so it’s pretty much untapped fishing. There are bait limits of half kg per day per angler no ground bait but we do have maggots, worms, corn, boilies, pellets, to start with all anglers will have to sign on to the risk and method statement and pay a fee on top of there current membership to gain access to the water. Please don’t enter the fishery until you’r signed up. I’ll be sending out letters to all members with details on how to access the water parking rules etc. The water is closed for a few weeks until we get the signs up and paperwork complete but we’ll be letting you all know when work will commence as there’s mountains of work to be done, cutting back clearing fishing areas etc before it can be opened.. Merry Christmas and Happy new year !!


Rainwater Work party

Posted: January 10, 2016 by Carrbrook Angling in Uncategorized

Essential work today on Rainwater after a tree had fallen into the lake in the storms, so it needed to be removed and the paths on the far side of the lake widened to allow better access and more room for bivvies

Rainwater Closure

Posted: November 10, 2015 by Carrbrook Angling in Uncategorized

Please be aware that Rainwater will be closed Sunday 15th Nov in the morning for essential fishery maintenance

Lovely to see the dam starting to fill out now after being a building site for so long. Nature is starting to do what she does best and make the place look natural again and the habitat we wanted to create is starting to take shape. There’s plenty of stuff going on under the water as well you cant see !
