This is a members-only water. There is no access to the general public. This Association-owned water is a small shallow reservoir at Aspull, near Wigan. Woodshaw Reservoir is famed for it's quality tench and crucian fishing. Fishing is easy with a uniform depth of 3.5 feet and no need to cast more than a foot away from the reeds. Mornings and evenings are best for the tench and crucians. In the daytime, fish a maggot in the open water for endless bites from roach and skimmers. There are no mirror or common carp present, and the club intends to keep it that way to preserve the unique, and very popular crucian fishing that Woodshaw offers.
