The measures imposed by the Government in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic have affected the opening of our venues. As of 13th May 2020, Wyver Lane Pond and Erewash Canal will reopen to fishing. For more information on restrictions & rule changes please see our COVID-19 fishing updates page.
The club’s stillwater fishing consists of a 2 acre pond at Belper, called Wyver Lane Pond. This intimate venue is a members-only water, with no day tickets available, and offers safe and quiet fishing away from the crowds.
The pond appeals to a mixture of anglers, with something to interest carp fishermen, pleasure anglers, match anglers and specialists. This venue has varied marginal features, including overhanging trees, reed beds and lily pads, but very few large snags.
Wyver Lane Pond is accessed via a private, gated track, off Wyver Lane and there is a club car park at the end of the track.
Night fishing is only allowed on the pond to holders of a BDAC night permit, but numbers of these are strictly limited. However, season permit holders may fish here between dawn and dusk, as often as they wish.
Fish species which can be caught in Wyver Lane Pond include:
- Carp to 23lb
- Tench to 8lb
- Bream to 6lb
The carp here fall to all methods, with floating baits accounting for numbers of fish throughout the spring and summer.
Waggler, pole or swimfeeder tactics can bring mixed bags, with bonus tench, carp and larger bream falling to slightly bigger baits.
