Milton Pools Fishery for Fishing in Oxfordshire

We are opening soon!! Yay 

We understand that everyone has been eagerly awaiting news on when they will be allowed to begin fishing again at Milton Pools Fishery. Our staff have been busy coming up with solutions to allow this to happen whilst abiding to the current measures put into place by the Government. As such we would like to provide the following update:

We will be reopening on Friday 29th May, however we will be implementing changes, for the safety of both our staff and our customers, some of which are listed below:


  • All anglers must phone and book first (NOT JUST TURN UP)

  • There will be a maximum of 2 swims per booking ( no exceptions )

  • 1 Adult fishing to 1 Child fishing

  • No children will be allowed to do overnight

  • No visitors or guests 

  • No Huts – Bivvys Only

  • All anglers must arrive between 7:30am and 9:30am (NO LATER)

We will be opening up the Specimen Lake, House Lake, Len’s Match Lake, Kidney Lake, and Campbells Match Lake, with a reduced number of swims to allow us to comply with social distancing rules.

  • Milton Pools Fishery will select the swims for each booking

  • Day bookings must leave by 6pm

  • Bookings for overnight fishing will run from 7:30am to 7:30am (Swims must be free and clear by 8am)

  • Kidney Lake, and Campbell’s Match Lake will be float fishing ONLY


1 Rod – £10.00

2 Rods – £20.00

Junior – UNDER 16 (1 Rod ONLY) – £10.00

24 Hours (2 Rods MAX) – £25.00

We please ask that everyone has the correct money ready as NO CHANGE will be given due to changes in our procedures when it comes to sorting out tickets.

Tackle Shop/Toilets/Rubbish

The Bait and Tackle Shop will remain CLOSED, however we will be taking orders over the phone for customers to collect on arrival (these orders will have to be paid by bank transfer – NO CASH).

Toilets will be open, and Milton Pools will provide toilet paper, hand wash, paper towels, and rubbish bins. However we are advising anglers to bring their own hand gel and wipes (to clean seat/handle before use). 

Rubbish – We will provide anglers with bin bags and protective gloves upon their arrival, these must be used to bag all rubbish which must be put into the Fishery skip at the end of the day. No other bins to be used.


We look forward to welcoming you all back,

Milton Pools Fishery
