Meadowlands Fishery is located close to Coventry in Ryton-upon-Dunsmore, Warwickshire. Anyone with an engineering background may be familiar with the venue as it is next to the Keller Group factory. At Meadowlands there are 2 waters on the 17 acre venue:
Lambsdown Lake – the largest of the 2 waters at over 13 acres takes up a large proportion of the fishery. If you like fishing big open waters then this will be somewhere you will be in your comfort zone. In total there are 65 pegs, so there are lots of different options on the table in terms of location and tactics. There are some big fish in here, so you would be wise to opt with gear that is capable of getting them on the bank. The pegs along the Keller bank have around 14ft of depth, but that shallows up to around 8ft at 25m – fish further out on the warmer days. The pegs along the dam wall are the shallowest pegs, but you will still find around 7ft of water. The margins along this area really perform well for some bigger lumps. The far bank is thought by many to be the best place to head, but very few pleasure anglers tend to go there because of the walk! The silverfish will often show on these pegs, but so do the carp – you could be on for a good day if you get the fish feeding well.
Warren Pool – a smaller 30 peg lake, that could be a real life example where smaller in size doesn’t mean smaller in stature. In comparison to Lambsdown this could be seen as a real second rate water, but in reality for many angers this water has just as much pulling power. There are plenty of carp (which run into the mid teens), bream and tench. Head over to the far end, on pegs 18/19 where you will find around 6ft of water – the bigger fish tend to lurk in these depths. The small corner section can be a good place to fish in the winter.
There is plenty of car parking on the site along with a toilet block and a snack bar that sells a small range of food and drinks.
