Merrington Carp Fishery

The Hayes Farm, Merrington, Bomere Heath, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY4 3QH.

Merrington Carp Fishery is situated in North Shropshire and is set deep in the heart of unspoilt countryside away from traffic noise and is a truly peaceful and tranquil setting. It is likely to become Shropshire's premier day ticket water and offers both day and night fishing with only carp stocked into the lake. The lake is a purpose built 9 acre carp fishery with both visible and underwater features in every swim. With 18 swims to choose from the lake is reed lined with islands, bays and plenty of magnificent carp to catch.

Fish Details
The fishery has been well stocked with some of the best true blue British carp in the country, the Wellington Park strain, that have regularly topped 40lbs. In spring 2005 it received it's first stocking of "Welly Carp" and in test fishing they have been caught to over 28lbs. In the spring of 2006 we introduced some of mark simmons fish to the original stocking of wellington carp. In the summer of 2008 we had our record fish caught by fishermen Jim, a common weighing in at 29lb 6oz, with plenty of fish being caught around the 27lb to 29lb nothing was heavier. This record was held for some time until a very cold march in 2009 and fishermen Markie Page caught our first 30lb Wellington common. We expect there to be a few more of the Welly carp reaching this weight and bigger in the future.
