We believe that Merrington is one of Shropshire's premier day ticket fisheries and offers both day and night fishing. The main lake is only stocked with carp but we have two smaller match pools which are ideal for beginners to the sport or those who enjoy watching a float bobbing about for a few hours. The purpose built 9 acre carp lake offers fishing for anglers of all abilities, whether you are a seasoned veteran or relatively new to the sport there is something for everyone. If you are not so comfortable casting at range into open water there are numerous islands and small reed beds that are only a short distance from the bank but still offer an excellent chance of a few carp gracing your net, we offer 16 spacious barked swims ensuring you are comfortable in all conditions.

The lake has also been stocked since the initial stocking and lake opening. These fish have also grown exceptionally well to over 30lb in only six years and they continue to pack on the pounds as each year passes. Fishing can be challenging at times however the rewards are there if you get your tactics right and it is possible to catch several carp in a day, we boast a large stock of over 200 carp with 85 plus over the 20lb mark, the lake average is 17-18lbs. The lake currently contains several carp over 30lb with our current lake record standing at 32lb 11oz, it should be interesting to see in the next year or two how many more creep over the 30lb bracket.
