Complete Guide To Trent View Fishery

How would you like to fish a 28 acre mature gravel pit stocked with over 2000 carp?

Trent View Fishery

It sounds daunting, but home to over 800 carp, topping 20lb, offers an angling experience like no other in the UK.

Located in Nottingham, Trent View Fishery is a family-run business that has been providing top quality fishing for over 30 years.

Vehicle access is via a stone track that meanders right around the lake, secured by an otter fence and 24 hour CCTV – offering a safe and secure venue for anglers and fish.

Key facilities include onsite toilets (cleaned daily), shower facilities, a tackle shop, food van and log cabins if you wanted to make a fishing holiday out of it.

The on-site tackle shop stocks all the latest tackle and bait, including pellet that the carp have been fed on.

For peace of mind, a bailiff is onsite 24 hours a day.

Trent View Fishery asks all anglers to dip their nets, mats and slings in the tanks provided UPON arrival.

Trent View Fishery Tips

This is a big venue that holds a LOT of carp, so taking your time to watch the lake and make a concerted effort with bait and rig choice will pay dividends.

The lake gets deeper the further out you go, and with many anglers trying to hit 120 yards plus, this is unnecessary most of the time.

You’ll be surprised how many carp you will cast over!

Secondly, there is bait.

You will need to use high quality bait (Trent View pellets are the best food source here) and probably lots of it due to the amount of water and fish in front of you.

Watching for fish activity is key to success at Trent View. If nothing is happening during the day, maybe due to high pressure or clear skies, then rest your rods and make a point of planning your overnight strategy.

Trent View Fishery is a great challenge, but can be a very rewarding session if you take your time, and remember to visit the website, social media pages and anglers on the bank for information before you fish.
