Attenborough Nature Reserve, Nottinghamshire

Attenborough, The StrandAttenborough Nature Reserve is the largest expanse of water on the associations book. Around 75% of the total area is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Because of this the rules are very strictly adhered to and a closed season is enforced, due to nature sensitivity some areas are now out of bounds to anglers.

The three gravel pits to the West of the River Erewash can be fished all year round. Attenborough is well known for the excellent Bream fishing on offer, however, as on all large waters, finding that large shoal is something of an art. For those members willing to put in the effort very large catches are possible. Quality Roach, Perch, Tench, Carp and Pike are also present. Special care must be taken when using this water with regard to discarded tackle and litter. As on all association waters, livebaiting is prohibited and artificial lures and spinners are banned on this water.

Night fishing is not allowed on most of this water, however night fishing is allowed (with a night permit)on the lagoons to the west of the River Erewash. Attenborough Nature Reserve is a members only water and is patrolled by association Bailiffs and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust Wardens, membership books must always be carried. A key is required for some access points.
