Near Gatten Fishery


Ratlinghope, Shrewsbury SY5 0SN, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Located among three acres of countryside in Shropshire, the Near Gatten Fishery is one of the newer locations on the block. Its dedication to carp fishing is second to none, however, and the desire to craft top-quality holiday destinations is already growing a sublime reputation.

The lake at Near Gatten Fishery is established in the Shropshire Hills and full of great big carp.

The experience is the thing at Near Gatten, though, and that means taking care of clientele from the beginning of the fishing voyage to the very end – all while ensuring tight lines to all who plunge the depths.

The Near Gatten Fishery website is underdoing a bit of a remodel at the moment, making information about this property a bit on the second-hand side.

Still, reliable reports suggest this spot as underdoing some significant changes over the last while and turning up “bags of potential.”

What size do the fish go to?

Carp at Near Gatten Fishery range from 20 to 40 pounds.

What tactics work well?

Time on the banks is everything here, which makes strategy a matter of trying new things and working things out. Patience is integral to landing the big catch.

As of 2017, Near Gatten did not allow the use of braided mainlines, leadcore, barbed hooks, and fixed leads.

No zig rigs, either.

Dogs and fires are prohibited on the property.

Advanced booking only as of 2017, although that may have changed. The best bet is to call the fishery and determine any updates to rules and regulations.

Is parking available?

There is parking at Near Gatten Fishery.
