We have two pools available at Goldstone:
IMPORTANT – Following an outbreak of Carp Herpes Virus (KHV) at one of our waters in 2021, it is very important that members fishing here (and at our other still water pools) use the disinfectant net dip tanks now provided. These must be used before and after fishing. Drying wet nets/unhooking mats at home after use (in the open air and preferably in full sunshine) is a further good precaution against unwittingly passing on this nasty disease to other places.
Goldstone Top (Common) Pool
A mixed pleasure/match pool, with a range of well maintained slabbed and natural pegs. This is an ex Market Drayton Anglers water.
Easily accessible from roadside – park vehicles on nearby verges [avoid blocking road/field gates, etc] or park just inside gate [max 2 cars – but take care not to release any grazing stock!].
Some photos can be seen in gallery below
Goldstone Bottom Pool
This spring fed pool is larger than the top pool and is located towards the far end of the field on your right, just as you approach the bridge over the canal by the Wharf Tavern at Goldstone, as marked by an ‘X’ on the map below.
You can park by the roadside, but please don’t block the gate. If the field is dry you can also drive across it and park by the pool – but take care to stick to the [indistinct] track though – if you get stuck its your responsibility to get out!
There are 24 pegged swims, and it contains silver fish and some carp.
