Crime Lake is a large expanse of water which was the feed to Bardsley canal. Popular for its large carp it also has a good head of perch, roach, rudd, bream, tench and pike.

This water is generally regarded as our Specimen lake. It’s home to some very large carp in excess of 30lbs, roach to 2lb and bream to double figures. You will also come across a lot of pike again pushing well into double figures. The water is very popular through the summer months.

You can fish the water on a day ticket for £2.50 per rod (no junior concessions). Fees are collected by our bailiff on the bank. Club members fish for free on condition that they are carrying their membership book and are able to present it to our bailiff on request. Members without books will be treated as non-members required to purchase a day ticket.
