Greenfields Lake is a medium sized fishing pond with a small island. The lake was originally dug out for the Blue clay. The top left of the lake is now a nature reserve and spawning area for fish stock, so please do not fish this area.
The lake is stocked with Mirror carp 20 lbs, common carp 25lbs, pike 10lbs, tench 9lbs, perch 5lbs, rudd 4lbs, roach 2lbs.
There is ample car parking and toilet facilities, all very accessible. There is no catering on site; but the Co-operative local shop is about 1/2 mile away, our nearest tackle shop is KC Sports about 2 miles away beside Wokingham train station.
A great place for the keen angler and also for those wishing to perfect their skills. Under 14s must be accompanied and have prior consent, they should not be disheartened as it is rare that anyone blanks, except perhaps in the depths of winter when the temperatures plummet. Most times be prepared to catch several fine examples in excellent condition and really bag up at the height of summer with a carp at practically every cast.
The bailiff will if required offer advice on the best method of catching fish at Greenfields and best baits and will also check that all our rules are being observed. Please be prepared to show the hooks and baits you are using and that you have all the compulsory equipment as described in the “local rules” section of this website.
Whilst with us we do ask you to respect the facilities and your fellow fishermen, there is ample space so do not sit too close to others and do not permit your baits to interfere with their space. We have provided plenty of bins and ask that you place all refuse therein, unused bait can be thrown in the water.
Like any open space this is shared with wildlife and discarded rubbish can be harmful to the ducks and moorhens whilst attracting less favourable vermin, your co-operation in this is much appreciated.
