Opened in 1994, Mallard Pool is about 2 acres with 48 pegs, making it the largest of the pools at Spring Lea.
It gently slopes to a maximum depth of 8 feet, but anglers should not ignore the margins, as some of the best Carp are often caught close in, near the rushes.
Mallard pool contains; Common, Mirror, Leather, Grass and Crucian Carp. There are many double figure Carp and several have exceeded 20lb. There are also good Tench to over 3lb as well as Roach, Rudd, Bream, Perch and Orfe.
The pool was extensively restocked in 2000 and new fish are regularly added.
The record match weight is 108lb for a 5 hour match caught on the 19th June 2016. See the Match Fishing page for more details.
