Poplars, the first pool you encounter on entering the fishery, is half an acre in size. It is in a sheltered situation with mature trees bordering its far bank, ideal for those windy days and Winter fishing. With an average depth of 4-6’ it has a central island and two lily beds at either end providing some nice features to fish to. Poplars is a Day ticket water all year.
It is stocked with a range of fish including mirror/common carp to 16lbs chub, tench, bream, perch, roach, Crucian carp and barbel. Fishing is consistently good all year round and Poplars is a favourite with pleasure men in the Summer and match men in Winter. Pole and waggler are the best methods with an occasional small ledger to the island or to the opposite bank if no anglers fishing. Corn, meat, pellet and maggots are the preferred baits.
