Poolhall is a well established mature carp fishery set in beautiful surroundings with wildlife in abundance. We are situated at Trescott in Lower Penn just off the main A454 Bridgnorth Road only four miles from Wolverhampton. The fishery consists of four pools, two which are carp pools and two which are mixed fish pleasure pools.
Poolhall fishery is located at Trescott, just off the A454 Bridgnorth Road only 5 miles from Wolverhampton.
Set in a beautiful quiet countryside location you would never believe you are only a stones throw from a large city. With wildlife in abundance this famous old fishery was once the home of one of the largest common carp in the Midlands with Humpy reaching just short of the 40lb mark, sadly this fish died in the early nineties.
Many of the original stock of Commons however still exist and there are many over the 20lb mark.
The fishery is split into two carp waters, The Meadow & The Lower, a canal style match pool and a small pleasure pool.
The fishery holds carp up to 32lb 10oz, catfish to over 50lb and pike up to 20lb and has proudly held qualifiers for the Carp Cup for the last three years. After six years involvement in the fishery we are always striving to make it one of the best day ticket waters in the country and still have many future plans for the fishery. There is a secure car park at the fishery and this is where you find the lodge, which is where you first report and take any advice from our friendly staff. This is where you will find the cafe, which sells hot food and both hot & cold drinks along with snacks. Bait is also on sale including our own PH boilies. Upon arrival at the lodge you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will always be willing to assist and give advice on all aspects of the fishery.
Phase 1 of the track will be completed by tomorrow morning. We have graded it all the way up. It will never be perfect but you can now drive comfortably at a constant speed all the way without the fear of bottoming out. The corner has been totally graded to leave no holes at all. The ground is quite wet so if any soft areas or holes reappear, we will have in excess of 40 tonne of plainings to use, to refill them. If I can ask that we can all drive at a responsible speed and don't use it as a race track then it will last a lot longer. Thanks to all those that have persevered with the track over the last few years.
This is the largest of the carp pools at 7.5 acres and consisting of 21 pegs. The pool has recently been extended to include the island part of the lower lake which has been excavated to varying depths of 4 foot down to 9 foot. This lake is heavily stocked with around 1400 fish, containing many of the existing stock of commons. To add to this there are an abundance of new young fish which are all nearing the 20lb mark. There are around 80 twenties estimated in this pool with 2 know thirties but we anticipate that this number will grow in the near future. Cats are present to around the 50lb mark. There are numerous features on this lake including large lilly pad beds, reeds, islands & silty channels. Beginning February 2014 we will be reducing the stock levels in this pool, by firstly removing any fish under 12lb and moving them to the Lower Lake. This will allow for the growth of all our young fish with both the simmo commons and Furnace Mill mirrors already surpassing the 20lb mark. We will be adding some of our own young fish at regular intervals, which include commons, mirrors, fully scaled mirrors, leathers and linears.
This is the first pool you see when you drive up the track. At 5 acres and consisting of only 9 pegs this pool will once again become the jewel in the crown in the next couple of years. Due to problems with the dam wall we had to drain this pool and basically start again. The pool is now full of water once again and has a healthy stock of around 300 fish which have been hand picked from all of our other waters. The clear water clarity has helped to turn the fish in to some of the best looking fish you will see. Both mirrors and commons run to around the 30lb mark with approximately 30 plus twenties and many others just short of this mark. This water will definatly be one to look out for in the near future.
Situated close to the car park this pool is a favourite for the match fishermen, at about three quarters of an acre and consisting of approx 14 pegs. This pool was supposed to be a stock pond but it became increasingly popular with novice anglers who could always guarentee to catch large numbers of fish leaving them to go home happy. With depths only averaging 3 feet it has become an easy water to fish and the species on offer include carp to 8lb, Approx 1000 small carp to 1.5lbs, bream to 6lb, tench to 4lb, roach to 2lb, perch to 3lb and a few of the original stock of crucian carp.
This pool is situated at the end of the complex and utilises the old canal section which had become overgrown and unfishable for the past few years. This pool is netted off from the main pool and is a favourite for match fishermen who want the chance of catching a few lumps upto 18lb aswell as the abundance of smaller fish on offer aswell. It consists of 18 pegs and has an average depth of 3.5 feet, the far bank is lined with reeds. This pool has already produced massive bags of fish to the anglers who are not put off by the walk.
