Motorway Pond

Thimblehall Lane, Newport, HU15 2PX, East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Motorway pond holds several species and has a reputation for big fish.
It produced the Yorkshire carp record fish of 42lb 8oz in 1999. The majority of carp are over 20lb, with around 10-12 in excess of 30lb.
In 2010, the Association introduced 20 young carp between 5-7lb, the first phase of an ongoing initiative to both increase the carp stocks, and introduce fresh blood to grow the specimens of the future.
There are also fine tench with fish over 9lb and bream over 12lb having been reported in the past. The water has produced a number of pike over 30lb as well as the occasional large chub, rudd and even crucian carp.
Although generally fished by specialist anglers in search of bigger fish, recent events have seen many more pleasure anglers searching out the increasing stocks of bream and tench. Large bags of quality roach to over 60lb, with fish to almost 2lb, are not unknown although the location is the key to success in this interesting water with many different underwater features.
