I can think of 30 maggotdrowners that would say don't touch the place [:D] But it's a good water.

Try dropping Bob the bailiff an email. He'll send you honest up-to-date info. Here's the website - http://www.foulridgeres.co.uk/up-dates.html Click on the send mail link at the bottom.

Last year it was feast or famine, and you really don't want to arrive in a famine. The walk is a killer too, but they were trying to sort out a car park last year so it might be much better by now. The regulars use the groundbait catty and fish the lead long range. They can go through over 10 kilo of puddin per match to keep the shoals interested. They're massive. Just cheap brown crumb laced with freebies is elaborate enough. Not too costly if it bums out either. Get it right and you can catch monster numbers of big black bream and tench.
