Keith BainesBorwickfishing is a flooded 30 acre gravel pit originally excavated to provide material for the construction of the M6 motorway.

The site was left undeveloped for many years, and only held a few fish species. The smaller fish fell prey to cormorants, and only the largest fish survived. Some of the carp and pike have grown to about 30lb, in addition to some very large 10lb tench. And good fishing tackle can be bought at

Around the start of the decade, British Waterways began development of the site as a fishing and visitor centre.

Five pools were separated from the main lake by building causeways across the bays. Another 3 pools were created to give 9 waters in total from a quarter acre to 15 acres in size with shallow wildlife pools dug around the northern boundary.

British Waterways stocked the new pools with £30,000 of fish before they decided to abandon the site and fish to the cormorants.

At Borwickfishing, we have restocked the pools, brought the cormorants under control and completed the abandoned works to provide excellent fishing and site facilities.

Borwickfishing is a Gold level accredited fishery.
