A private estate lake nestling at the foot of a steep, woodland slope next to Tarn Pond. As fishing is limited to only one bank, Warren is an ideal spot for members who enjoy secluded, hassle free angling in beautiful surroundings.
The lake contains a very respectable head of Carp which, because of the shallow water, are easy to locate and not too difficult to catch. This is not, however, just a Carp water. The obliging population of Tench and Roach make pleasure fishing on the Warren a delight.
Most anglers concentrate on the far bank margin, placing baits as near to the marginal tree canopy as possible and find the Carp very obliging!
The shallow water and deep silt pose interesting problems for the Carp angler and the Chod rig is recommended for the best presentation for bottom baits and, as the Carp show themselves frequently, a Pedigree Chum Mixer presented on the surface can provide excellent sport..
Bream, Tench and Crucians respond well to the standard pole or tip techniques and can provide hectic sport.
Warren Pond fishery session: 6am - 2pm 15th August 2010
8 x Bream up to 4lb (new PB) with others between 1 - 2lb + 15 Roach & Skimmers caught on float fished maggot at 15m out and 1m deep using size 14 hook to 2lb hooklink and 4lb mainline.Christopher Lowe
The first time I fished Warren Pond: 22nd June 2010 - Mark Lister.
Arrived at Peg 1 at 5:45pm; it seemed as I was the only one fishing the pond. A very calm evening, could clearly see the carp cruising through all the swims with no interest in any of the floating food. I decided to go for the Tench and set up 2 rods. A 2BB crystal waggler using a size 18 hook was set up on the float rod with a feeder on the other. The feeder I loaded with bread pieces and sweetcorn, with 2 pieces of corn on the hook. Casting to the left of the swim into the bay area. The float depth was set at 18 inches hook point to float tip, loading the hook with a single grain of sweetcorn, I cast directly in front of the swim about 18 feet from the bank in the middle of the loose feed I put out as soon as I arrived. For the first 1/2 an hour I was catching silver fish on the drop, then came a bite that was the first of 13 Tench, the average weight was 2.5lb with a best Tench of of 4lb at 7.30pm. All the fish fell to the float tackle and sweetcorn, the feeder only registered while the fish where moving through the baited area and brushed my main line - the evening was brilliant, perfectly peaceful and relaxing.
