Bailiff – Dennis White
West Golds (g.r.858725) is approached from the Templers Way, opposite Gormans Scrap Metal Yard (g.r.865721) in Newton Abbot. A tidal water that is incorporated in the flood defense system of the local area.
Extreme care should be taken here, flash tidal flooding is common. The water holds dace, roach, skimmers, mullet, and carp and is a quiet venue where all methods work.
It surprises many that carp to over 20lbs are present in this water in view of its tidal nature. The stock is ever-changing with the flow of the higher tides.
Location & Access
West Golds (g.r.858725) is approached from the Templers Way, opposite Gormans Scrap Metal Yard (g.r.865721) in Newton Abbot.
Access can be found behind the Tesco supermarket. Turn in to Tesco when coming in off Newton Road then follow the road down the side of Tesco till you reach large gates clearly signed as Rackerhayes fishing complex. You will need a key to access the complex so make sure you stop off at Tackle-Trader to collect a key.
There is no parking near the pond. Anglers can park at our Rackerhayes complex and then walk towards Newton Abbot until they come to the footpath for Templer’s Way at the large traffic island.
