This is a good, mixed fishery with easy access and parking behind your peg. It boasts a varied stock of fish of generous proportions.  It is well worth spending some time and getting to know this fishery to reap the rewards.

The club have taken over this, once day ticket venue, on a long-term lease for the benefit of our members and have spent a considerable amount of time and money on bringing this venue up to a high standard with decent fish stocks.

To encourage a family orientated fishery a toilet with washing facilities has been installed. This has a combination lock which uses the standard SAA lock number.

Heron pond, which was originally 2 smaller ponds  has good head of crucians, skimmers, carp at around 6lb, perch and roach in this pond.

Kestrel pond had its platforms renewed in 2023 followed by a stocking of bream. It also holds carp, tench, roach and perch.

Kingfisher pond is a float only water due to its configuration and to provide diversity to our portfolio.  There are lots of rudd, roach and carp along with a new stock of 1000 juvenile skimmers.

Matches can be booked all year round on each of these ponds.

Further information can be found on our Face book page SAA:Scunthorpe Amalgamated Anglers.
