The Chicken Run Fishery, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire

Open all year, there are 29 pegs on the River Witham with adjacent camping and campod facilities. This is the once famous "Chicken Run" and it still produces some astounding bags and specimen fish.

Parking by each peg with easy access to pegs 1 - 14, beyond these the bank is a little steeper but still very accessible. Mergin weed can be a problem but we are happy to clear booked swims with advanced notice.

Early season Bream nets of 50lb - 100lb are still available on this stretch with specimens averaging 5lb. September offers fantastic sport when the hybrids feed eagerly in the late afternoon / early evening with bags of 30 - 50lb taken on pole or wagler.

Bream to 7lb, Tench to 8lb, Rudd to 4lb, Carp to 18lb, hybrids to 2lb (great sport in early September), plenty of silver fish to ½ lb and Pike to 18lb.
