Brief description of fishery:
Fishing is dawn to dusk only – Fishing times
Dogs: Dogs are not allowed on this venue, with the exception of assistance and therapy dogs. Any such dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.
Medge Hall is a small, deep, triangular pond. Set in attractive woodland, it is a typical club water containing carp, bream, ide, crucian carp, tench, roach, rudd, and perch.
It currently has 16 fishing platforms, in various states of repair. Several years ago, at considerable cost, 17 state of the art platforms mad of recycled plastic were installed. Regrettably, shortly afterwards, the venue was very badly flooded and the the platforms were literally lifted out of the earth. Attempts to re-fit them failed and most were rendered unfit for purpose..
Last year, 2022, 5 platforms were replaced, with another 5 to be done in the near future. A further 2 will be added later. It should be noted that these new platforms cost in the region of £750 each.
Address – Jaque’s Bank, Sandtoft, England, United Kingdom

There are two or three ways of reaching this pond but the main, and perhaps easiest way is to drive along the A18 from Scunthorpe towards Doncaster. After the Crowle turn off, the next right turn is signposted ‘Medge Hall’, Take that road and follow it as far as you can before you meet a T-junction. Turn left and you will appear to be driving into a farmyard, (This is Crook O’Moor Farm, but there is public right of way). You then turn almost immediately right and drive over the canal bridge. On the other side of the canal is a manually operated level crossing. The man will come out of his signal box and open the gates for you. He will do this even if you don’t sound your horn several times and annoy him. Once through the level crossing turn right and you will see our sign and a locked gate to the fishery.
The gate has one of our combination padlocks fitted. Please lock the gate after you and then scramble the numbers. You then follow the track and you almost run into the pond. Parking is on the hard standing to the right of the track and in the car park.
