Nanpantan Reservoir

Nanpantan Reservoir

Loughborough, Leicestershire

Nanpantan Reservoir is located close to the Leicestershire town of Loughborough, it may have the reputation as being a carp water, but there are plenty of silverfish to target in here. This could be one of those venues where you may have to put a few visits in to get an understanding of the water, but if you put the effort in then you should see some big rewards.

The reservoir generally fishes well all year round, if you target the silverfish in winter then you should get plenty of bites, but the fishing does get more prolific in the warmer months. As you look at the water from the car park you will find the shallowest water at this end, this will be the best place to target the silvers - that saves you a long walk! All tactics should work, pole at 10m will give you around 7ft of water, further out then you might be best to fish on a feeder or straight lead. If you fancy trying something different then a slider could give you the edge over some other anglers. A ground bait approach with maggots, casters and pellets will work well for all species, try fishing corn or chopped worm to tempt the bigger fish.
