Our Waters

Our fisheries are very well looked after and it should be noted that nearly all of the swims on our lake fisheries have access for disabled anglers with or without wheelchairs.

Westbrook Mere & Snooks Pool

Westbrook Mere was leased by the club from 1927 and was bought in 1954. It is an old gravel pit of some 3.5 acres with depths varying from 2.5 to 10 feet.

In June 1966 eighteen year old trainee carpenter Ron Groombridge (today a club bailiff) landed a huge 40 lb 8 oz mirror carp, then the second largest mirror ever caught anywhere in the UK, and at a time when huge carp were thought to be almost uncatchable. The angling world was alight with tales of Mere Monsters and some of the old warrior mirrors still swimming in our waters are from that original mid 1950s stocking.

Upper Great Ouse

Like so much of the upper Ouse, our section provides members with a marvellous variety of swims which change constantly with both the weather and the seasons.

The swims vary from shallow glides to deep bends, many with cover from overhanging willows and bushes and all of which can produce first class fishing for chub, roach, perch and pike and there is always the chance of an occasional barbel.

River Colne

The club has the rights to fish a short section of the River Colne near Watford between the M1 and the A41. This is small river fishing of the best and unexpected catches may surprise you.

Great to attack it with a trotted float and brilliant for short sessions. Species on this stretch include carp, chub, perch, roach, dace and pike.

Durrants Hill Fishery

Durrants Hill Fishery is a gravel pit complex dug in 1984 and is leased from Dacorum Borough Council. It is a lake of 2.75 acres for the exclusive use of club members and their guests (subject to club by-laws).

It varies in depth from 3 to 14 feet and was originally stocked with tench to over 7 lb, roach in excess of 2 lb plus a healthy head of large crucian carp, rudd, pike and perch. Since then further tench, roach and more recently bream and carp have been introduced.
