Description

Situated at the end of School Lane, off of Church Road in the sleepy village of Alresford sits this beautifully established 4-acre lake. Lined with overhanging trees and sustaining heavy weed growth in the summer months, this idyllic lake is the jewel in our crown. Depths range from 3ft at the 'cottage end' to in excess of 12ft at the 'footpath end'. Weed beds, gravel bars and overhanging trees give plenty of areas to fish to. Some time may be required to learn where all of these features are and to get the most from this water, but this time will most certainly be rewarded with stunning Carp to 30lbs, Grass Carp to 34lbs, Tench in excess of 10lbs and Bream to over 6lbs. There is a substantial head of silver fish species with Rudd and Perch to over 3lbs being recorded and Roach to 2lbs. Pike to 16lbs also reside here.

There are ongoing works to significantly improve access to this water with plans to cut new footpaths and re-design a number of pegs to make things more comfortable as well as potentially, increasing the size of the parking area, and introducing further sloped access as opposed to the current steps in places.
