Fishing at Tucking Mill

Bath and North East Somerset

Free for disabled anglers and stocked with roach, rudd, bream, perch, carp, tench and gudgeon.

Season dates: 3rd January – 23rd December 2022.

If you are a disabled angler, you’ll find lots of great fishing at Tucking Mill - a storage lake stocked with roach, rudd, bream, perch, carp, tench and gudgeon. You may be lucky enough to hook a common or mirror carp weighing well into double figures! You may also catch a couple of white and orange coloured koi carp at this beautiful lake.

There are 24 swims on site and six of them have specially designed wheelchair accessible platforms, large enough to provide space for two wheelchairs. If you are a disabled angler, you may bring along an assistant who can also fish from the same platform.

Please note that no keep nets are permitted for pleasure fishing although they are allowed in matches. Landing nets must be dipped and if you are targeting carp unhooking mats are preferred.

Tips and tactics

• Try bread, either in punch or flake form for float fishing or as surface crust for carp in the warmer months, for all round good results. Maggots, corn or pellets work too.

• Rod and line tactics are successful while the pole can work very well at times and you don’t have to fish a long way out.

Accessible for all

Fishing is allowed from 8am throughout the year. There is an automatic gate which can be operated by holders of a Radar key to provide access to the site. 

Tucking Mill is ideal for group angling sessions for people with disabilities.
