Pilsworth Fishery

Moss Hall Road, Heywood, OL10 2, Lancashire, United Kingdom

Pilsworth Fishery is an established mixed course fishery in Heywood,
Lancashire, providing accessible and affordable high quality fishing on a
day ticket and overnight basis. Over the last 28 years the owner Eric
Taylor has put much hard work into the lakes in terms of stocking and
landscaping and the rewards can be seen in the excellent stock of fish
and the relaxing environments provided.Match Lake The 47 peg match lake hold good stocks of carp ,roach, bream,
skimmers, chub and barbel and is approximatley 4 -5 feet deep all over
the lake and has two islands that can be easily fished to. Pole or
waggler is recommended. It should be noted that there is no
night fishing or fishing with floating baits on this lake and all rules
should be adhered to. Matches are held on a Wednesday evening ( May to
August) and on a Sunday ( All Year ). Specimen Lake This is an eleven acre lake ranging from 5 feet deep at the car
park to 18 feet deep at the dam wall and has a stony/silty bottom which
is relatively snag free. All methods work well but dont discount the
margins - some of the bigger fish are regularly caught just a rod length
from the bank! The water holds a good
number of carp to 37lb including plenty of 20lb+ fish and it also holds
good stocks of bream, perch and pike. Pegs are provided with plenty of
room for your bivy and a fresh water tap is available next to the car
park. Work has now been finished on the
construction of a new banking and 10 well spaced out pegs have been
provided on that side of the lake.The LodgesThese five lodges provide 40 pegs for match and leisure fishing for day
ticket anglers. The lodges hold good stocks of carp, tench, roach,
bream, chub and barbel and range from 4 to 7 feet deep. Pole or waggler
is recommended.

Hi Eric as you know rats are moving from farm barns etc and heading to the country side fisheries are great for them attracted by spilt bait etc, I am a BASC insured airgun shooter looking to get rid of vermin for local businesses free of charge, and also act as another pair of eyes and ears on your land making sure everything is as it should be, if you think this might be of service email me and I will come by for a chat, however if you are okay, thanks for taking the time to read this, very best regards Ian
