Water temperatures have now fallen to acceptable levels and we now feel able to re-open for fishing on Dons & Woodside Pools with stockings of new fish ready for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Marton Heath is a family run fishery where anglers can expect a friendly welcome on arrival at reception.

Whilst the fishery is man-made, great attention to conservation is evident, with trees, hedges and a wildflower plantings supplementing the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. There is always something interesting to see, as Pheasants, songbirds, waterfowl and a world of insects and butterflies, catch your attention whilst you fish.
