Fishing at Rixton is for WAA members only.
This interesting stillwater offers good fishing for the pleasure and specimen angler.
The lake resides within the Rixton Clay Pits reserve which is owned and managed by Warrington Borough Council. The site is a Special Area of Conservation and SSSI, so members are asked to keep to the paths and take care not to disturb the flora and fauna of the site.
The clay pit has numerous islands, points and bays. In summer, there are large stands of lily pads, and this is a pleasant place to fish on a summer's evening.
The main stock of fish are tench, bream and roach. Tench average 3-5lbs and can be caught on the usual float or ledger tactics. Bream average around 3lbs, with lots of skimmers present too. There are specimen carp and pike to be caught also, both going to upper 20s. The water has also produced specimen perch and crucian carp in the past.
Members are asked to use the club locked car park. Night fishing is limited to 2 consecutive nights.
