Barston Lakes is an all round Fishing venue at the West Midlands Golf Club in Solihull, conveniently located for Coventry, Birmingham, Solihull, Leamington and Warwick. We have the 125 peg, 25 acre Barston Lake which holds Carp to 37lb and is available for Carp (inc Night) Fishing and booking for matches from 10 to 100 people. Half of the lake has car parking behind the peg or close by, and some pegs are suitable for wheelchair users, the right hand side of the lake has a public footpath / bridle path. We also have the 22 peg Matchpool which can be booked for matches and Jake's (10 peg) and the 18 peg Daisy's, which is available on a first come first served basis.
Anglers are allowed to use the golf clubhouse which means we have some of the best catering facilities located at a fishery in the country. There is a bar open from 7am, food available during daylight hours to eat in or take away, and toilets and showers available. Please bear in mind other users of the clubhouse, and we respectfully ask you to remove any outerwear which may have been in contact with fish before coming into the clubhouse and to hand wash before entering the clubhouse.
There are very few rules here at Barston, No Barbed hooks, No Surface fishing, No Braid mainline (although it is allowed 1st November to 1st May) and no keepnets unless in a match (in which case you will need one for silvers and one for carp). There are a few more rules for the Carp club members, if you wish to night fish, you must have a night permit and agree to the rules, (£20 for the year) and you must check before night fishing if there are any matches on the following morning. Please also be aware that we closely monitor anglers here throughout the day, and we will not tolerate anyone messing around in any way, you will be asked to leave with no tickets being refunded.
All fish must be returned to the water, no taking of fish is allowed and if we find anyone taking fish we will report it to the police. Anglers are encouraged to notify us if they suspect anyone to be fishing with intent to kill or take fish off site. Our fish are micro chipped and you may be asked to hold onto fish for tag checking at any time.
