Opening Times

Water Details

The two lakes are set in the Yarrow Valley Country Park. The reservoirs were originally built to serve an old Bleach Works many years ago. The big reservoir was drained and left for a few years before a solution was found by Wigan AA and Chorley Borough council who took over the ownership and took all the silt and created the new Country Park/ Nature Reserve as it is now to be shared by everyone.

The park is very popular with visitors and is probably best fished early morning in summer in a few discrete pegs. The reservoirs depth ranges from 6 – 14ft near the outflow. Large Tench 8+lbs are the main attraction with a good head of large Bream. Roach, Perch and a few Carp and Pike are also present. The water is very clear in summer, probably caused by millions of small snails on the bottom, filtering the water. This in turn allows the weed to grow in the summer months.

Fish Details: Bream, Roach, Tench, Perch, Pike and Carp.
