Goosedale Fisheries is located close to Bestwood on the outskirts of Nottingham city centre. The fishery has two lakes, one is a superb match lake, the other a large specimen carp lake.
The fishery appears to have gone downhill. There was a lot of outrage on Facebook when someone identified a picture of a fish caught at the venue as the same fish that they had caught out of the Trent. It turns out that big carp don’t magically appear in your venue, but paying some chumps to catch and steal them from the river could be a more realistic outcome.
Nelly’s Lake – a 2.5 acre match lake with depths ranging from 2ft to 7ft. Fish wise, there is a large head of carp which range from 8oz through to 12lb. The lake also holds a good selection of skimmers, rudd, roach, tench to over 4lb, and perch.
Greylag Lake – is the largest of the two lakes at Goosedale. At a massive 16 acres, the lake holds an excellent head of large carp ranging from 5lb up to over 30lb. This lake is now a syndicate carp water, with fishing exclusively for syndicate members.
