& Mill Ponds
small ponds in paisley Renfrewshire worth a visit in this area both are
around 2/3 acres ... Firstly Durrockstok pond in Waverley Road Foxbar, the
water is shallow and can be weedy in the summer but good 20s have been
coming out over the last couple of years, it is free to fish which is
always a bonus ... Secondly the mill pond on Station Road Paisley is again
shallow and access is restricted but again fishing is free and fish to 16lb
came out last year if anyone would like directions to any of the above they can contact me at.
Both Ponds are owned by the local council and no permit or permission is required.

Scottish Carp Group
struggling for info on Scottish lakes though we are sure there is more that
could be added to the list, so if you own/manage a lake Scotland or you know a
lake that you think should be in the list then please let us know about it and
try to include as much info as possible, location, fish size, contact details,
anything you can think that might help!
