"Quite possibly the most popular water in the region for Carp Angler!"
Trench pool is set beside the A442 "Queensway" and Trench Road in the area of Trench. The pool is a very good size and has a good stamp of specimen fish.
Trench pool seems to hold predominantly large fish in all of the species that are present within the pool, with few small fish to target.
Trench Pool is a firm favorite of the "Carp Angler" as the chance of a big fish and in many cases few, is the lure of the pool. This isn't a "runs water" where you could expect many bites off small double figure carp, and your tactics need to be right, but the fish you can expect to catch are hard fighting and great specimens.
Trench Pool is also well known for it's large Tench, where they have been had in double figures. They are low in stock, but spectacular specimens.
See below for more details on Trench 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, Trench 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!

Parking At Trench Pool.
Trench Pool has the benefit of it's own parking. The parking is not vast by any means, and is shared by the general public, as there is a public pathway along one side (Capewell Road), where cars can be parked behind the pegs here. To ensure that you get parking, keep the time in which you arrive in mind.

Is The Trench Pool Disabled Friendly?
Although there is a flat, and solid pathway that goes around one side of the pool (Capewell Road), access to the pool requires anglers to traverse steps to each of the pegs. On the other 3/4 of the pool, there are many large rocks as this is the "dam wall" which hold the water in place.
All anglers are to assess their own capabilities before they fish TAA waters.
How Many Pegs Are There On Trench Pool?
Trench Pool has a total of around 25 pegs.

Baits And Methods On Trench Pool.
Whether you're a course anger, or you favour carp or Pike fishing tactics, if you like to target specimen fish, Trench Pool will be right up your street!
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 attention.
The Carp Anglers do very well using boilie and particle tactics with many opting to use PVA set-ups. It is recommended to use "Cray Fish safe" hook baits, as there are quite a lot in the 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.
**PLEASE THINK OF FISH CARE AND FISH SAFETY AT ALL TIMES ON TAA WATERS, WE WOULD LIKE OUR FISH TO LIVE LONG AND HAPPY LIVES**
