Well stocked with coarse fish such as roach, rudd, tench, bream and eel, the pool is a delightful place to fish, from boat or jetty. In the deepest recesses of the pool also lurk the pike that gave Marton a modicum of fame in the late 20th Century. The largest known specimen of pike caught in recent years is a 28 ½ lb fish landed by a local fisherman, which has been preserved in a wall-mounted display. Access to Marton Pool for fishing is exclusively reserved for holiday home owners. Please note, that due to its SSSI status, the pool is closed for fishing between 15th March and 16th June. This is to allow natural breeding to take place.
