Baden Hall Fishery is now one of the largest pleasure fisheries in the country, comprising ten individual pools, covering over 70 acres of water and holding over 300 pegs, specialising in all aspects of course angling, match, club, pleasure and specimen (Carp Pike and Bream)
Baden Hall fishery is split into to two main sites, the quarry complex and the day ticket complex:
Day ticket complex
Competition on the Middle Pool
The angler who catches the orange Koi carp in the middle pool which weighs between 18 & 19lb wins a free weekend’s fishing. This must be verified by one of our bailiffs. Good luck
All of the pools are well stocked with mixed coarse fish including carp, chub, bream, roach, perch, tench, barble, orfe, golden orfe, etc.
Five of the pools are available for match bookings, holding from 15-54 pegs per pool. Three pools are for the pleasure angler only and are never let out for matches, thus ensuring over 120 pegs are always available for the day-fisherman, with carp to over 20lb, bream to 12lbs perch to 4lb and lots of roach between 1lb and 2lb. For more information on the individual pools, see the map in Fishery Pools, and follow the links. To see what matches are on this week, click here.
Tickets must be obtained from The tackle shop before fishing. If you arrive before 7:00am, you may go to a peg and set up, but you must first check the notice board at Reception for rules and matches, and you must return after 7:30am to pay. Alternatively, you can purchase a ticket from the automated ticket machine, however you must have the correct money for this as it only takes coins, and gives no change. A wide variety of baits and tackle are available from our onsite tackle shop, as are refreshments such as soft drinks, lager, sandwiches, sausage rolls and chocolate bars. Cooked breakfasts are now available in the clubhouse most weekend mornings between 7:30am and 10:30am.
Open all year round – 8:00 am – dusk – winter hours.
7.00 am – 9.00pm – summer hours

Both pools available on 24hour tickets only at a cost of £30.00 per 24 hours.
NEW LAKE RECORD 45lb 5oz COMMON CAUGHT BY DANIEL TRUEMAN ON 11th AUGUST 2013
This 18 acre water was the first of the two gravel pits to open back in June 2007 and contains the biggest fish of the two waters with carp averaging around 24lb, with over eighteen 30lb+ fish and pike to just under 30lb. Not forgetting the fish everyone wants to catch the lake record 45lb 5oz common.
The Bridge Pool
NEW LAKE RECORD 32lb 8oz MIRROR CAUGHT BY CONRAD ASTON ON 21st SEPTEMBER 2013
This 10 acre pool opened in 2010 and although the carp are not quite as big whith the average fish being just under the 20lb mark and a lake record of 31lb 1oz. The bigest pike caught is just under the 20lb mark, so there is some good fishing to be had, Of the two lakes this is the easyer one to fish as it doesn’t become as weedy in the summer months as the quarry pool. It is also a great location for a soical as all ten pegs are along one bank.
A testiment to the quality of these two waters is that in 2011 and 2012 the british carp angling championships held qualifiers here, And this year in 2013 the BCAC’s are back again on the 26th and 27th April. As well as the Deaf society Carp angling championships which is being held on the 22nd and 23rd March
