"A tricky pool that will test the most of your angling skills. An underappreciated jewel in our portfolio of waters!"
The Middle pool is set beside the A442 "Queensway" and Wombridge Way in the area of Trench. The pool is a very good size and has a good stamp of good sized fish.
Middle Pool isn't the easiest pool TAA have, but if you put the time in, you have the chance of some fantastic Bream, Roach and the odd Tench when fishing, and even some very large carp!
Middle pool is mostly frequented by the budding "Carp Angler" as the chance of a big fish is the lure of the pool. This isn't a "runs water" and you will need to put the time in, and ensure that your tactics are up to the task. These fish know what you're doing!
See below for more details on the Middle Pool.
**Koi Herpies Virus (KHV)**
Sadly, due to the unfortunate event in which un-tested fish were introduced to the pool without TAA being informed that they were not tested, Middle Pool has been infected with KHV.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR NETS ARE RINSED AND FULLY DRY AFTER FISHING MIDDLE POOL AND BEFORE YOU FISH ANOTHER VENUE!

Baits And Methods On The Middle Pool.
Whether you're a course anger, or you favour carp or Pike fishing tactics, if you like a challenge, then the Middle Pool is right for you!
If you are targeting Bream, Tench and Roach, you cant beat the usual course fishing methods such as Pole, Waggler (float) , Feeder and Bomb tactics. Maggots, Casters, Hemp, a good quality groundbait, pellets, sweetcorn and small bandable boilies and wafters will always get the attention of the Carp and Tench in the Middle Pool.
If it's Pike you're after, then it's deadbait tactics that produce the best although, some use lures to good effect too.
