Waggoners Wells Lakes

Waggoners 1 Waggoners 2

 Species Present:  Carp to 30lbs, Tench, Crucian Carp, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Gudgeon, Brown Trout and Eels.

Historic Waggoners Wells dates back to the 17th Century where it is believed the lakes were constructed for use as “Hammer ponds” to support the local iron industry at the time. The venue consists of three lakes each feeding into each other with the best fishing present in the bottom and middle lakes with the top lake nearest the car park reserved for dog swimming.

The bottom and middle lakes hold stocks of the original Leany Carp strain introduced into the Lakes some 60+ years ago with many specimens exceeding 20lbs.

In addition both lakes are well stocked with other species Gudgeon, Perch, Tench and truly top class Roach fishing with many specimens in excess of 1lb + falling to float fished sweetcorn and bread flake. The middle lake is also home to some large pike and Eels for the patient angler who is prepared to put in the time to capture these elusive specimens. The venue is closed and observes the traditional close seasons from the 15th March re-opening on the 16th June.

Fishing is from dawn until dusk with no night fishing on the venue.

 

Hollywater Lake

 Hollywater 1

Species Present:  Carp, Pike, Perch, Rudd, Roach, Tench, Crucian Carp.

 The most recent addition to the GAC portfolio the venue tucked away on the Hollywater Road between Passfield and Whitehill (Take the turning for Arthur Rudd’s Yard and the parking to the venue is on the left just before the bridge over the stream)

 The lake holds a good stock of Roach and Rudd with Tench, Carp and Pike also present.

The Carp run particuarly large with a decent head of fish in excess of 20lb, a stealthy approach is needed with well placed baits if these specimens are going to be caught.

 Fishing is from 8 swims along the western bank of the fishery.

 Fishing is from dawn until dusk with no night fishing on the venue. Similar to Waggoners Wells Lakes the venue operates under the traditional coarse fishing close season and is closed from the 15th March re-opening on the 16th June.

Damson Pond

damson 1

 Species Present: Carp, Tench, Rudd, Roach, Perch and Crucian Carp.

 Guaranteed to catch whatever the weather the venue is located in peaceful countryside on the outskirts of Grayswood near Haslemere.

 The venue is small but prolific offering excellent sport all year round with good catches whatever the weather. Float fishing of all types delivers the best results with baits such as pellet, sweetcorn, meat and boilies best for the carp and larger Rudd.

Perch were added two years ago to reduce the small Rudd population, drop shot lures and Lobworms account for some large specimens in excess of 2lb.

 The venue also holds signal crayfish and members should take care to ensure landing nets and keepnets are shaken well and fully dried before re-use at other venues. We also have Crayfish traps which are managed by a third party, members should not remove these.

The venue is open year round.
