Shelt Hill Fishery is located just outside of Nottingham city center, in the village of Woodborough. There are three lakes which tend to offer good sport even in the depths of winter.
Chestnut Lake – a 35 peg snake lake. Most pegs have access to the central island which is around 16m from the bank. The pegs along the edge where you sit with your back to the other lake tend to be the areas where a lot of the carp tend to congregate.
Hazel Lake – A smaller snake lake with 20 pegs. There is a good head of silvers in this lake.
Stock Pond – this would be a good choice for a junior or someone who has recently got into the sport.
The fishery is fairly new and as a result, the vegetation around the lakes is starting to mature. The surrounding land is quite open which means it’s often quite windy – something to bare in mind if you are planning a trip. There are matches held on the venue, there is an open match each Wednesday and then sometimes club bookings on the weekend.
