"A fantastic mixed fishery, perfect for beginners and seasoned anglers alike"
The Dandy Pool is set within the outskirts of Little Dawley and the Telford Town Park. The pool is part of a three pool complex and is the second largest of the three. The pool is the first pool from the car park and and quite possibly the most popular pool on the complex.
The Dandy pool has recently undergone some updating with the management of trees and plant life.
The Dandy Pool has a very good stock of fish and would be classed as a typical "runs water" for the budding day time carp angler. There are other species in the pool to target however, carp angling is the mainstay on this pool.
