northwich or stocks
i have fished it for many years and as far as i am aware there are no pike in stocks as there are no course fish either, but as for letting you take them out i am sure they will.

In therapy.
Last year, a few lads on the Pike Fly Fishing Forum were talking about contacting the then new manager about fly fishing for Pike. I'm pretty sure that they did and that he was thinking about it.
If I remember correctly, they thought that there used to be pike in there, albeit hard to find but the poachers may have got most of them out.

Best to give Stocks a ring.

If anybody is looking for a good day out then get Stocks, no need to fish lures even this early as there is loads of buzzers hatching.

I fished Nymphs & buzzers for a great day.

The fish I caught on Saturday were a credit to the Fishery and Ben.

Fished here Saturday for the first time. Thoroughly excellent fishery beautiful location - the fish are a credit to the excellent running of the place. Several times I thought I was into fish at least double the size they turned out to be!
