"A small mixed fishery with great Tench angling"
Dothill Pool is set within the edge of the old market town of Wellington. The pool is part of a two pool complex within the "Dothill Nature Reserve" and is the smallest of the two.
Dothill Pool has recently undergone some updating with the management of trees and plant life to allow for better oxygenation of the pool and better the lives of our stock.
Dothill Pool has a very good stock of fish and is suited to the beginner as well as the seasoned angler. Dothill Pool is regarded as one of the better pools in the area for the Spring and Summer Tench fishing on offer, with many good sized fish being caught.
