We are very excited to be reopening our gates on Thursday 3rd December with the announcement of organised outdoor sport being able to take place we cannot wait to see you all on the banks again next week! Below are a few updates for once we reopen…
(We are reopening on Thursday as we are just finishing off some major ground works in the car park which was a bigger job than expected and will be completed by end of day Wednesday).
As Warrington is in Tier 2, the rules are as follows..
Our Tackle & Bait Shop will be open along with our online shop (click & collect point is the Tackle Shop)
The Partridge Lakes Café will be open for food & drinks, the indoor seating area is open but no mixing inside, our outdoor seating area is also open and households can mix in groups of up to 6.
Our gates & facilities will reopen under our winter opening hours;
Fishery Gates – 7.30 am until 5.00 pm
Café & Tackle Shop – 7.30 am until 4.00 pm
We are delighted to welcome pleasure anglers back onto our banks, tickets will be available to purchase on our website however you can purchase tickets on the day from the Tackle & Bait Shop upon arrival on the day subject to availability. Holbar day tickets are currently at the reduced winter price of £10 for 2 rods.
We will be putting day tickets on our website today (Thursday 26th November) for Thursday 3rd December until the end of the year.
Thankfully organised outdoor sport is once again allowed so our matches will be starting from the 3rd December so our Open Matches, Winter Leagues & Christmas Matches will all be going ahead!
You must book on for open matches on our website, we understand you may want to book on on the morning of the match mid-week so the match tickets will be left online to book on until 7.30 am the morning of the match MID WEEK only. For weekend matches, the tickets will be taken off at 3.00 pm the day before the match – limited weekend open match spaces will be available due to winter leagues.
All Open Match draws will be rolling from 8.15 am from the van on the main car park (there won’t be the cones as you drive in, just the van will be parked at the wide entrance to the outdoor seating area near the ornamental pond side, please walk or drive up to the van window to draw your peg)
The open match fishing times will be;
All mid-week days (both OAPs & opens) – 10.15 am until 3.15 pm
Weekend day with no winter league on – 10.15 am until 3.15 pm
Weekend day with a winter league on – 10.00 am until 3.00 pm
We will be putting match tickets on our website today (Thursday 26th November) for Thursday 3rd December until the end of the year.
As we aren’t quite ready to be to open Wednesday 2nd December as many OAPs had hoped, we will be putting an additional Over 60’s & Disabled Open Match on Thursday on Covey 5 & 6, and an open match on Coveys 1 – 4.
Both 8.15 am rolling draw but the Open Match from the van, and the OAPs from the cabin door.
Due to the month of closure, we have missed 2 x Saturday and 2 x Sunday Teams of 4 Winter League rounds, so the proposed rearranged dates are below, if these dates do not work please could team captains get straight in touch ASAP by email email@example.com, if we don’t hear anything we will assume the new dates work (we have emailed team captains directly also!)

We can’t wait to welcome you all back next week and thank you for your lovely messages over the last few weeks, and on another positive note – the HS2 meeting I had went VERY WELL this week and I really felt that they respected the Fishery and are truly doing everything they can to keep the future of Partridge Lakes very bright!
