Gunthorpe Complex, Lakes and the River Trent

Winthorpe Lake and River Trent
ABOUT THIS VENUE

Dollar Lake at Gunthorpe Gravel Pits... This lake is a carp anglers dream some 80+ acres of gravel pit that has everything a carp could possibly want masses of water under water bars deep areas shallow areas overhanging trees islands, weed you name it.The fish in hear go very big The Carp/Tench/Bream and pike are quality. The methods are as you would expect really, a marker rod is an essential bit of kit here. Bait boats will be allowed BUT will be monitored and if abused the owner of the boat will be banned not the boat. Be warned! This is a trial period as Ashfield rules do not allow them normally but under the circumstances we feel we can give it a test period. The pegs around the lake are not as many as you would expect taking the size of the lake in to account.

Gunthorpe Complex

Strictly no cutting trees or reeds at any time this is a wildlife reserve and this will be done by the bailiffs after prior consultation with the committee and Severn Trent Water. The complex is huge and it will take time to sort out. As you approach the lake the track to the right goes around to the river Trent section and at the far corner splits into two ALL VEHICLES must NOT take the LEFT track this is foot traffic only as it is not safe for vehicle and members doing so risk being banned from the club.

We do not allow fires at any time only for care taking purposes again after being discussed by the committee. BE WARNED! Members are permitted to fish FP, Duffers, Tench lake and Dollar lakes only as well as the whole of the river section of the river Trent.
Kingfisher Lake is for our affiliated Kingfisher Angling Club members only and not to be fished by the standard Ashfield Club membership.

Member also note that at certain times of the year Duffers/FP/Tench Lake does get very very weedy and extreme caution is required when fishing at these times, Members are urged to use use only relevant gear and methods in the respect of fish welfare. Please note also that on all these specimen waters all the relevant big fish gear is required i.e. Unhooking mat,large landing net etc etc and carp care medication is a must.
