Open Matches

Open fishing matches at Spring Lea Fishery are open to all anglers. Whether you’re a competition champion or just want to have a go at match fishing for the first time, everyone is welcome to take part.

At Spring Lea we host open matches four times a week; Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. All matches are open to all anglers. To learn about upcoming matches and book your place, please contact us.

All fishing matches are drawn from 10am, at the Lakeside Café, with a rolling draw. Each match lasts for 5 hours – all in at 11am, all out at 4pm. Matches are charged at £18 all in, which covers £8 for your peg fee, and £10 to contribute towards the prize pot.

Winter matches from 1st November will be drawn at 9am – all in at 10am, all out at 3pm.

On match day, please go to Lakeside Café to complete your draw. Once your peg has been chosen, please make your way towards the pool. Our tackle and bait shop is well stocked, with all the essential items you need for a day’s fishing.

Match day winners are announced once all weights have been recorded back at the café/reception area. All match results are posted daily on our Facebook page, and uploaded onto the News section of our website. Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with all upcoming matches and match day winner announcements.

Ahead of arriving on site, please take the time to read through our set of match fishing rules.
