Brereton Heath Lane, Brereton Heath, CW12 4, Cheshire, United Kingdom
Brereton Pool is a former sand quarry in a beautiful country park in Cheshire. It is a 14-acre lake with an average depth of 15ft. The lake is very clear, with virtually no weed at all. While the average depth of this lake is 15ft, there are some areas that reach 30ft. There are also gravel bars and silt beds dotted around the lake. This means that careful plumbing of your peg is vital to finding the perfect spot to fish. Once you find the perfect fishing location, though, you can catch some stunning carp at Brereton Pool.
What size do the fish go to?
The carp at Brereton Pool go to about 29lbs; there is likely a few 30lbers in this lake now, though. There are also plenty of carp to over 20lbs in this lake and a good amount of double-figure carp too. The average stamp of carp at Brereton Pool is about 17lbs. There are also some good pike in here over the winter and some really nice tench and bream all year round.
What tactics work well?
Finding a gravel bar to fish to is the ideal option here. There is a new swim on this lake that was once in a no-fishing zone, so if you can get that swim, that could give you an edge. A good bed of bait to attract the fish into your swim, and then a bright bottom bait could just see you land one of the 30lbers.
