Crayfish Pool Berkshire

Crayfish pool in Berkshire is an intimate carp water of just 2 acres and around 10-12ft of depth. Improved security in recent years has led to an increase in popularity of this small syndicate operated by Cemex Angling although it still only sees a small amount of anglers due to it's size, just 12 swims, and considerable challenge.

Most of the original fish which put the venue on the map, such as Scar, have now sadly departed however recent restocking has brought the numbers to around 30 carp. Original fish still residing here include Lumpy, Bottom Loop and Penny and a handful of commons such as Nettles, Ronnie & Reggie.

The stocked fish are a mixture of Simmos and Sutton strain carp have grown quickly with a number now topping the 30lb mark. The water also holds some very challenging fish such as the Slate Grey which has become a bit of a legend for evading capture.

Entry to the syndicate requires joining a waiting list through Cemex. There is a 7 day rule with 48hrs off. Bait boats are banned which befits a venue of this size.

The water operates the typical Cemex April/May close season as well as two rod limit for the warmer months.

Situated near the awesome Wraysbury and Horton venues this really is a neck of woods where the dedicated carp angler is spoilt for choice.
