If you want to target some of the country’s largest stillwater barbel then this is the water to head for. Fish to an incredible 12lb reside within Crater, and due to its relatively small size, they are quite easy to locate.

Carp to around 15lb have also been stocked, making it a venue that is certain to provide you with rod bending action.

Fishing to the features with pole, waggler or feeder tends to work best, with corn and pellet the best baits during the summer. Maggot tends to produce plenty of action once the temperatures drop down.

Due to the fairly small size of Crater, it is a perfect venue for club matches and small knock ups for pleasure anglers feeling in a competitive mood.

Matches are held on some weekends so call us to check availability.
