Buzzard

Buzzard is 3/4 of an acre in size. It was stocked at the beginning of 2011, opened for fishing in 2012 and then re stocked in 2020 when further fish were added to boost stocks. Buzzard is an ideal water for those interested in taking up fishing.

Buzzard has 20 pegs.

Fish

It now holds a good head of mirror, common and F1 carp between 4oz and 3lbs as well as good numbers of roach and rudd around the 8oz mark. About three-quarters of the fish are carp. Carp up to 15lbs.

 Method

Whilst most anglers fish the pole, Buzzard is also a decent waggler water with banks which slope at 45 degrees and an average depth of between 6 and 7 feet, although in parts it drops to as much as 9 feet.

Bait

Because the fish in Buzzard are still small they tend to eat anything they can get in their mouths, making sweetcorn, soft hooker pellets, small pieces of luncheon meat, chopped worm and maggots popular baits.

As with any water it pays to feed little and often to get the fish going and to hold them in your swim, but Buzzard is one of those waters where anglers tend not to measure their catches by weight but by the number of fish caught!
