The Dell Fishery


Northwich, Cheshire

Fishery Information

The Dell is a brilliant little fishing lake controlled by the Dunham Massey Angling Club. It is a very small lake on farmland that has 6 pegs, so it can fill up quite quickly, although it isn’t the most fished venue controlled by the DMAC. The Dell is a very secluded water, so it’s perfect for anglers looking to escape and focus on their fishing. It is a great lake for pole anglers, but there are some good carp in this water if you like to target bigger carp.

What size do the fish go to?

The fish in The Dell aren’t too big. There are some double-figure carp, and some locals say the carp can get to about 20lbs, although they are difficult to catch. There are also some amazing tench and bream in this lake, some to over 6lbs. Some silver orfe are also present, along with some good perch, roach and rudd.

What tactics work well?

As we said, pole fishing is really good here. The Dell is nice and shallow, making it good for the pole and the float. Of course, a method feeder can attract the larger fish into your swim, though. Maggot, corn and pellets are all good options here, but good quality groundbait is a must to draw the fish in.

What facilities are on site?

There are disabled pegs at The Dell. The DMAC ask that any able-bodied anglers give these pegs up if a disabled angler arrives at the lake.

Is parking available?

Yes, parking is available at The Dell.
