Fens Pools showcase the largest area of open water in Dudley and comprises three pools Grove Pool, Middle Pool and Fens Pool.
Wardens take care of the Fens Pools Nature Reserve with work that includes vital management of habitats. Managing habitats such as hay cuts of grasslands and introduction of a pond connection network throughout the reserve enable a wide diversity of species to be sustained and therefore conserved.
The diversity of habitats within the reserve sustain a wide range of animal species.
An angling permit system regulates the fishing at Fens Pools. The site is primarily a nature reserve, however, angling is well established and is a highly valued informal activity. The three large pools and adjoining canal have excellent fish stocks, including some very large pike and carp.
Please note: A close season operates from the 15th March - 15th June each year and fishing is not permitted during this period.
