Janson Fishery is a well established coarse/match fishing complex in Nottinghamshire. We have three match lakes available to book for club matches. We also run Open Matches throughout the year on a Tuesday and Thursday.  From October onwards we hold regular Weekend Open Matches.

There are two pleasure lakes, Tomo’s a well established 30 year old lake, with a good head of carp some into double figures, plus barbel, tench, golden orfe, roach and rudd. Donut Pool is an oval lake with a central island at approx 10 meters, this is a mixed lake with plenty of silver fish and carp. Ide and Barbel up to 4lb and carp up to double figures. Our new match lake Aubreys is available to pleasure fish if there are no matches on, please enquire in the Tackle Shop if it is available.
