has any one fished here if so whats it like and which are the actual pools. as if you look on google maps there are 3 or 4 but can only see a small one with pegs on but was told there was about 3 places to fish.

i emailed them last year, they don't allow fishing inside conkers, the pond you can see with pegs next to the car park is swad angling. further south is conkers waterside, the canal basin there down to the lock near moira furnace is free. plenty of tench,bream and roach, from the lock to the bridge in donishorpe is 4, from the bridge to the basin is free again, but the tench haven't made it that far down. the car parking is free, if you set up at waterside and go on the far side from the carpark you don't get bothered by walkers/dogs etc. be aware of car park locking up times.

had a look at the maps and i'm a bit confused as to where ya mean. the waterside basin is at conkers and is the more square area with a staggered side, this part is free and all the way down to the lock just past shortheath road. but then were is the bridge the only thing i can see is at the furnace near the tea rooms and then something which looks a little like a dam a bit further down. and then from which ever bridge it is the final basin behind brooks close is free.. correct?!?! lol

also if fishing basin at conkers your saying fish on opposite side of it to the main building out of peoples way etc?

sorry for being dumb lol
