Draycote at 640 acres is a popular competition water, with angling clubs and associations holding their various matches on the water during the year.

We have 32 boats based at Draycote but can if required increase that number to 50 boats by bringing more boats in from our other fisheries.

We can also host bank competitions with enough available bank space for over 100 bank anglers.
