Big Billinge

General description

Situated on one of Cheshire’s largest reed beds, Big Billinge has approximately 25 well spaced pegs for the angler to chose from.
Most of these pegs are also suitable for night fishing and bivies, making this water the ideal venue for the specimen angler. As well as having a healthy stock of common and mirror carp, there are also numbers of specimen tench and bream approaching and over the 10lb mark, again cementing the water as one of the best big fish hotspots in the north west.
Night cards are available online, from several local tackle shops as well as club HQ for an additional cost.
