River Perry

2 Holyrood Street, Chard, Chard, TA20 2, Somerset, United Kingdom

Chard and District Angling Club in conjunction with South Somerset District Council controls the following waters: Perry Street Pond, Chard Reservoir, Sadborow Pond and The River Isle.
Perry Street Pond is situated approximately 4 miles from Chard. The former mill pond is stocked with a large number of Carp from 1lb to 20lb. There are 20 well maintained pegs to choose from and an abundance of features to fish to during the summer months.
Chard Reservoir is 48 acres of open water. It is popular venue for Match Anglers, Carp Anglers, Ornithologist and Walkers alike. Carp (to 33lb), Bream (to 7lb), Tench and Roach dominate this water. There is a circular walk through the woods and around the Reservoir with a high percentage of the pathways accessible to the less able visitor. Chard and District Angling Club in conjunction with South Somerset District Council control the waters. Night fishing is permitted and proves very popular amongst the Carp Anglers as the swims are large and accessible for bivies.
This nine pegged venue is situated on the Sadborow estate in Dorset about 7 miles from Chard. There is ample off-road parking and easy access to most pegs. At one end of the pond there is an island which is a good carp holding area. Sweet corn, meat and maggots work well when fished on the pole to the island or out in open water. Care must be taken not to ship poles back into the road - you have been warned! The Sadborow league proves very popular each year but places are limited.
Chard and District Angling Club hold the rights to fish a quarter of a mile stretch of the River Isle. Parking is available next to the bridge adjacent to Powermatic Limited. Follow the public footpath sign which will take you along the river up to the double spanned road bridge which marks the end of the C&DAC's stretch of the river. Sections of the river vary in depth, width and flow. Chub, Roach, Rudd and Grayling are plentiful in these waters.
Night fishing is permitted and proves very popular amongst the Carp Anglers as the swims are large and accessible for bivies. A member of C&DAC will come around during the day to collect payment and issue permits. You may arrive at any time and set up on either the dam wall, next to the car park or in the woods.
