Places To Fish: Coole Acres Fishery
Cool Acres Fishery is located in the scenic south Cheshire countryside near Nantwich, around an hour to an hour and a half drive away from our Liverpool Store. This location has been perfectly designed to be a great place for fishing enthusiasts to visit.
There are three great lakes to choose from. These are Fox Lake, Spanner Lake and Lodge Lake. Both Fox and Spanner lake contain species such as Carp, Roach and Chub. In Fox Lake Carp can weigh more than 30lb, because the sizes of fish in this lake can be so big you are able to night fish there. Lodge lake is for Tench specialists but also includes Crucians, Roach and Chub. The lake does though contain some ghost Carp up to 10lb and tench sizes range to more than 8lb.
When the fishery was originally designed it was considered essential to make provisions for local wildlife. As a result they regularly see species returning that have not been there for the last two centuries. These include many species of bird, a good number of bee species and numerous butterfly and moth species.
There are also great facilities on the site as well including toilets and showers (designed with disabled anglers in mind). If you were looking to have something to eat there is a cafe which can also be used to host events and special occasions. As well there is a large decking area which can seat 18+ people.
Like all fisheries there are rules that need to be followed when visiting. Some of these include disabled anglers having priority to disabled pegs, dogs are not allowed, using braided main line is not allowed and you must have a valid environment agency rod license.
There is also a big emphasis on fish being treated carefully. Some ways the fishery goes about doing this is by banning keep nets, every angler must have a quality landing net and you cannot remove fish from the site. For all the rules it is best to check their website.
We would highly recommend a visit to Cool Acres Fishery. It is a great place to fish and really puts an emphasis on making sure the angler has as much fun as possible.
