Fishing wise, the pond is rammed full of fish. No matter what the weather, if you can’t catch fish here then you should really reconsider fishing as a hobby. The pond is an oval shape and there is a feature island which is just off to one side. Methods wise, if you suit your approach to the weather conditions then you will catch fish. Make sure you fish in a positive manner, as you risk the chance of being plagued by small fish all day.
