Welcome to Ashmoor Lakes!

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 News!

We are open!

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!
