There is nothing worse than turning up at your favourite complex to find that the water of your choice is taken by match anglers but you can sleep in the comfort that this issue will never occur at The Rising Fishery which is dedicated to pleasure fishermen.
Set in the beautiful foothills of Pendle, Lancs, this three lake site – which is under new management - and holds no matches is stocked with everything from hand sized roach to 30lb plus carp.
The Hallows is the biggest water, providing lots of features for you to place a float next to. Two islands are the perfect place to launch a light waggler or small feeder towards, while the abundance of reeds and water plants down the edge make the margins an appealing area to target.
Broomstick is a small snake lake and has a uniform depth throughout of around 5ft. Carp to double figures, bream ,tench and roach figure in mixed bags.
Cauldron which is situated next to the car park making it ideal for anyone with mobility problems. This is home to some of the biggest fish onsite and beefed up tackle is advised if you want to get the better of these large residents.
Boilies work for the lumps, while corn, pellet, meat and maggots are a better option if you want to see the float fly under regularly.
When using the Method feeder set your tip fairly slack. If it is too tight, fish will brush up against a tight line and spook easily.
