Ashmoor Lakes is set within the beautifully wooded area of Ashmoor Copse. We have 3 lakes over about an acre of land, and 36 fishable swims. The ponds are well landscaped and have reeds and lilies to create features to fish to.
All 3 lakes are joined underground by a series of pipes to allow all the fish to move between the 3 ponds, meaning that where ever you sit, there is always a chance of catching all the fish species that reside here.
We are a mixed fishery and species include Carp, Bream, Roach, Rudd, Tench, Perch and Barbel. There are also the odd Grass Carp, Golden Rudd, Chub, Golden Orfe, Crucian Carp and Goldfish to be found too.
There is a lot of wildlife in and around the lakes and regular visitors are ducks, Buzzards, Kingfishers and all manner of song birds. Keep an eye out for our resident grass snakes in the spring and summer and woodpeckers making use of the few surrounding dead trees.
Facilities on site include net dips and a toilet.
Toilet will be closed during 2021.
Day tickets are £10 per angler for up to 2 rods, and anglers pay from the bank, so you can turn up and start fishing straight away
Ashmoor Lakes fishery is currently open!
We are looking forward to seeing you all once again and seeing what fantastic fish you capture!
Take some time to familiarise yourself with our rules, as there are some new ones and some Covid related reopening guidelines for you all to follow.
We have no idea how busy we are likely to be over the coming months, so we would like to highlight one particular rule: Only fish from designated swims. If all the swims are taken up, you will have to come and visit another time.
This is both to provide space between other anglers and to ensure that our fishery is not over fished and cut down on over pressuring them and potentially causing excess stress and over feeding of the fish, both of which could cause poor water quality and fish deaths which we have seen in other fisheries due to over crowding.
Don't forget, if you capture a particularly special fish, be it a regal Rudd or a beautiful Barbel, send us a photo of your capture. We would love to see what you have caught!
As of March 29th 2021 government guidelines now indicate that 'outdoor sports and leisure' can now open.
With these new guidelines Ashmoor Lakes again to anglers from Monday 12th April 2021.

Please adhere to these guidelines! They are in place to protect all our fish, customers, staff and our business:
As of 12th April 2021 day ticket fishing price will be:
£10 per angler for up to 2 rods
The normal day ticket rules still apply:

Please take you time to familiarise yourself with Ashmoor Lakes' fishery rules.

The toilet will be remaining closed throughout 2021.
Send those photos in, no matter what the species is!
We proudly boast being a MIXED coarse fishery, not another Carp Hole, so we love to see all our fish selection.
Caught any BIG and BEAUTIFUL fish at Ashmoor Lakes and got the photos to prove it?
Why not send the snaps to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Don't forget, it doesn't matter how big your catch is, we want to see the photos! And so does everyone else!
Not only does it give you a chance to show off your catch, and get you posted on our website and Instagram page (ashmoorlakesfishery), but it also helps us too. We can see the quality and health of our fishes from your captures, and help us to maintain and care for our piscatorial pets much better.
We would also love to see any wildlife or nature photos taken from the fishery, as the abundance of animals and plants found at the fishery is great to see and how off too!
Please ensure you add your name and weight on the emails of any fish photos you send to us.
