Jeff and Linda purchased Janson Fishery in March 2017, after having run a successful Fishery in Derbyshire for a number of years.

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.

There is a cafe onsite providing hot food and drinks, indoor and outside seating area, there are toilets onsite, we also have a Tackle Shop providing a wide range of supplies for carp and match fishing.

The match lakes regularly produce nets in excess of 100lb with the lake records on Match Pool of 489lb 5oz in August 2017, and on Munroes 404lb 12oz in September 2017. An impressive 261lb has been produced in Tomo’s during a charity match in May 2017.
