Some details of the Coarse Fishing and Coarse Fishing holidays at Nineoaks Angling Centre. Nineoaks is open all year from sunrise to sunset. It is not a big complex, just a good one. It is one of the prettiest fisheries and also a first class Angling center and an Anglers’s Mail Top 100 Fishery. It has 2 Coarse Lakes, a small Novices Pool, and 3 Trout Lakes plus some top class Holiday Accommodation in Holiday Cottages and superb Static Caravans. We provide excellent Fishing with a large variety of clean, hard fighting Carp and quality Coarse Fish, including Roach, Bream, Tench, Chub and small Barbel. Our smaller fish think they’re bigger than they are and never know when to give up, you will be surprised at just how hard they fight!

The Roach go to 2lb in the House Pool and the Main Lake, and about 3/4lb in the Novices Pool. The deep House Pool contains some lovely 3lb Bream, a few Tench, Grass Carp to 17lb and Carp to 22lb.

  • In the Main Lake and House Pool there are plenty of good sized Roach, with 6-7oz fish being common, and every chance of landing one of 3/4lb and over.
  • In the Main Lake and House Pool there are all varieties and colours of Carp, including, Commons, Mirrors, Linear, fully scaled Mirrors, Leather, Black "olde English" Carp, Grass Carp, Koi (yellow, orange and mottled), Golden Carp, Ghost Commons, Ghost Mirror and Silver Carp. From beautiful babies, through to 20lb+ fish with an average size of around the 4lb - 5lb mark.
  • There are Tench, with the biggest caught during 2011 around 3lb.
  • The Bream average 1.5lb in House Pool with Many up to 3lb and plenty of 3/4lb+ skimmers in the Main Lake.
  • We also have some Chub, in House Lake and Main Lake, with the largest caught in 2011 about 15" long.
  • There are some small Barbel in the House and Main Lakes.

For Holiday Accommodation you will have to go a long way to find better, cleaner, fresher smelling than those provided here. We have a couple of Static Caravans, overlooking the lakes, a semi-detached Bungalow plus a Cottage annexe. Both regularly graded by the Welsh Tourist Board of a 4 Star Standard. They are suitable for an angler, perfect for their partner or their family having a luxury holiday. They have Central Heating, fully equipped kitchens, leather couches, power showers - the lot, the only thing we don’t have is a "hot Tub"!

A few notes about the Fishing

Fishing is good too throughout the year, margin fishing is excellent, particularly during spring, summer and autumn, and night anglers often stop fishing in the very early hours saying "if we didn&rsquot stop we wouldn’t get any sleep" often having landed about 70 Carp in a 24hr session up to 18lb and occasionally bigger.

General Coarse fishing is also good, we have some superb Roach fishing with Roach up to 2lb and plenty 1/2lb or bigger, good Bream about 3lb and over, Grass Carp in nearly every lake and plenty of lovely golden green Tench plus Koi and all species or varieties of Carp. The Carp go up to the mid 20’s with plenty around the 10lb mark and many bigger, with the average Carp around 5lb or 6lb.

Getting around the lakes is easy with grassy ramps for the non-ambulant and good sized wooden platforms aplenty. Almost any bait will catch, floating bread and chum mixer pellets being awesome after 4pm, and in the summer months fish tinned Beef Tongue - fantastic and with the usual bait’s of sweetcorn, luncheon meat, meat balls etc. good anytime at nearly every peg.The House Pool is nearly 10ft deep with a large Lilly bed and plenty of reeds and bushes etc. around every lake.

The Main lake being around 3-4ft deep with shallow margins whereas the Novice’s pool is around 6-7ft deep with plenty of smaller fish, and some good sized Carp, to keep every one happy.

Overall a place definitely worth a visit and an excellent place to stay whether for a fishing holiday or a family holiday.

The center is located about 2 miles inland from some of the best sandy beaches and beautiful coast line in Wales. There are plenty of things to do and see just a short drive away. Many fisheries are usually isolated and once on-site you have a long travel to find other things to do. Here, you can fish in the morning, take the wife out during the day and return for some spectacular afternoon and evening fishing. What more do you want - a fantastic holiday, superb accommodation and awesome fishing, and no “black marks”?
