Willow Marsh Fishery

Fantastic Fishing | On Site Cafe | Perfect for Club Bookings

 

 

SUMMER OPENING HOURS

From Tuesday 29th March 2022, Willow Marsh Fishery will be open Tuesday-Sunday with first admission at 7:30am and gates closing at 18:00pm (Tuesday-Saturday) and 17:00pm on Sundays as per our Summer Opening Hours. We are closed on Mondays with the exception of Bank Holiday Mondays.

Our cafe, The Willow & Boar open Tuesday-Sunday and is operational between 8:30am and 15:30pm, with food service ceasing one hour prior to closing (14:30pm). Please visit the cabin to purchase your day ticket, venue pellets and corn if you require. Please continue to check the pool availability on the website before your visit, particularly on weekends. Driving to pegs is weather permitting and dependent on ground conditions. There are two car parks, one near Dragonfly and the cafe and one further down the track nearer to Whispers and Sandpipers. Trolleys may be required.

Set in the beautiful Worcestershire Countryside, Willowmarsh is one of the prettiest fisheries in the Midlands. We work very hard to keep the fishery and fish in tip top condition so we would ask all visitors to respect that, adhere to the rules and enjoy the fishing and surroundings.

We have three lakes on the complex for matches and pleasure fisherman alike all surrounded by mature trees, water iris and especially willows, hence the name. The view from any of the pools is absolutely stunning, and is always commented upon by anglers. All three of the lakes have pegs constructed of wood and slabs which are in the process of being refurbished, our middle pool ‘Whispers’ has recently had a full peg makeover.

A real bonus of fishing on our complex is that weather permitting, you can drive and park behind your chosen peg. Just be aware that in wet conditions this isn’t permitted to protect the beautiful natural environment you are fishing in. If the weather has been wet recently and you are unsure if you’ll require your trolley, please feel free to give the fishery a call and we will be happy to advise you further.

Alongside the beautiful lakes and fishing at Willow Marsh, we also have our own tackle shop in addition to our cafe The Willow and Boar. Here, we serve hot breakfast food (all day), light lunch, cakes, soft drinks, hot drinks and snacks. We are licensed and serve a variety of bottled beer, wine, cider and Prosecco. The cafe is open Tuesday to Sunday (closed on a Monday except for Bank Holidays), just like the fishery, and is open from 08:30am-15:30pm. Food is served until one hour prior to closing (14:30pm).  Match bookings for breakfasts are welcomed, please contact the team at the cafe to book in advance. You can do this by heading over to the cafe website www.thewillowandboar.co.uk or pop over to Facebook and search for ‘The Willow and Boar’ to get in touch or find out more information.

Our popular Dragonfly pool is the first lake on entering the fishery.
