Welcome to the Gold Valley website & online Tackle Shop.
The Gold Valley complex was first purchased in 1992 by John Raison (Raison Brothers). The Raison family have owned fisheries since the early 1960’s with the original family fishing tackle business being started by their father in 1932.
"Whether you fish a match hoping to catch 200lb or you are going for your personal best specimen fish, Gold Valley is the venue for you."
The Gold Valley complex was developed from the start for anglers, allowing not only experienced fishermen but also beginners to have a memorable day. Our original stocks were unfished and most obtained from game waters and private estate lakes. These natural fish have spawned over the years producing thousands of fish special to Gold Valley. When needed and correctly sourced, additional fish have been added along the way to make the fishery as good today as ever.
Since opening, the fishery has established itself as a venue for many of the top match fishing series and qualifiers with the who’s who of the fishing world having wet a line at Gold. Whether you fish a match hoping to catch 200lb or you are going for your personal best specimen fish. Gold Valley is the venue for you.
The complex offers a licensed bar and cafe, ladies and gents and disabled toilets, a fully stocked tackle shop, large secure car parks with parking also directly behind at least 60pegs. The venue is available for day ticket fishing match bookings and corporate events.
About the Lakes

Large stocks of carp, both mirrors and commons, up to 30 plus lbs with tench, bream, curcians, roach, rudd and some very good perch all regularly caught.
