See map below showing designated swims.
Carp Anglers may fish any area of water provided there are no other anglers already fishing in the designated swim they wish to fish. If another carp angler starts fishing in an adjacent swim then they should both only fish within the dedicated fishing zones as shown on the map.
Carp anglers will, however, be mindful of any pleasure anglers fishing around the Pit. This will entail that if a pleasure angler is fishing a pegged swim this now becomes their swim
This new fishery rule allows for 15 carp anglers to comfortably fish the Back Pit without causing issues for one and other and also allow pleasure anglers to slot in where they wish to fish provided they are respectful of the carp angler who in turn are respectful of the pleasure angler
The Front Pit has 14 natural swim boundaries.
Anglers should have wellingtons or waders when fishing the south west bank on the Back Pit swims 4 to 9 in order that fish can be landed safely when the water at the edge is shallow to avoid damaging fish.
