Pottery pond is no longer fished on,... I believe there are no longer any fish.
Can you spin here
Is there a toilet on site please
Dear owner, I have just seen your pond on the fish adviser web page and would like to attend some time. Having not been there before I would like to know a couple of things so to turn up with the correct equipment. I will be fishing for Pike so is it possible to use a pole in the same pond for carp or would it be better for all rods. Also can you give me the opening and closing times please. One last thing, are there disabled pegs near the car park and is booking required. Many thanks and sorry to trouble you. Terry
How much is it to fish this venue
£20 for 24 hours ,£10 from dawn till dusk for the carp and pike and £6 for the other species

I visited Pottery Pond for the first time in search of tench. I don't think I'll bother returning. It's a lovely looking pool but I fear the stock levels are low based on my experience and that of the other 3 fishing that day - a bit of a ghost town all round. One of them was a repeat angler who catches a few bream but said the pool is known for being quite hard. I fished in good conditions switching between 2 likely looking swims with 2 rods, mixed up my bait and tactics and couldn't by a bite. Just 2 small perch for my efforts. I'm convinced there were no tench in either swim! I don't douby there are some big tench in there but I'd have to conclude that they're extremely hard to selectively target, at least with any consistency. I think if you go after bream from the middle of the far bank (from the road) the odd tench might show up. Equally if you target the carp you might bag one though the stocking density for the carp is pretty low I believe. It's a shame as the pool is a lovely, natural water. I feel extra stocking should be undertaken to make this a more appealing venue. I for one would love to see 500 tench put in!

Used to fish this lake 10 - 15 years ago, did fish well near the old entrance car park. Looks well maintained but could have ruined a good fishery. Was told he takes fish from his other lake at follifoot and puts them in his specimen lake on Pottery lane.

Not the fish the owner tells you are in there. Thinks like a builder and not an angler, shame.

Hi guys, just to make you aware of this pond, the owner of this pond has several other ponds including one specimen pond. me and my father used to fish this pond quite often with only ever catching a jack pike. We know that he has been taking fish from this pond to stock his specimen pond. Thus meaning the pond has died vey quickly. I can honestly say that it would be a waste of money fishing this, the most activity ive ever seen at this pond wasn't topping fish or anything similar, but when he decided to create a new entrance. in my opinion if your near York area head to Willow Fisheries very active pond great owner and he loves his spinners dog treats as fav bait! such a shame as this is a beautiful pond with great potential. but a greedy owner has destroyed this pond.
