Objectives of Mersey Valley Fishing Club
Our objectives are very simple:-
“We aim to provide an attractive and secure environment for the recreational fisherman who wants to enjoy peace and solitude in beautiful surroundings”
Although some competitions will be organised for members the emphasis is very much on recreational fishing, we take great pride in our lakes, our fish and the environment and we invite applications for membership from anyone who has similar values.
If after perusing this brochure you feel you would like to join, please ask for an application form available from the golf shop.
If you would like to view the lakes prior to applying please make an appointment.
Appointments to view and application forms available from the golf shop.
During the last 8 years we have constructed two fishing lakes at Mersey Valley Golf Club.
The larger lake, Chestnut, has two large islands, with 29 fishing platforms around the perimeter and depths of water ranging from 1 metre to approximately2 to 3 metres in places.
The smaller lake, Acorn has one island, with 20 fishing platforms and similar depths of water.
Both lakes have a 1 metre deep ledge, one metre wide around the perimeter to ensure adequate weed growth, to encourage spawning and of course to act as a safety ledge.
Quality Common and Mirror Carp well into double figures, Roach up to 2½ lbs, Perch to over 4 lbs, Tench to 4 lbs, Rudd, Orfe are abundant in both lakes. In 2008 we introduced Barbel and Chub to both lakes. In November 2011 we introduced further barbel and a quantity of Crucian Carp, we are looking to introduce further species in the future.
The lakes are ideally situated close to the car park and clubhouse and are set in beautiful and tranquil surroundings.
