Fishery Information

A lovely small pond in a very pleasant rural location in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. Well stocked with various species, including Ghost Koi Carp to over 25 pounds, the lake has the added benefit of two little islands that form interesting features. Winchfield is one of the Society’s more recent acquisitions and could present a few piscatorial surprises in the future with Roach, Rudd, Perch, Bream, and Tench possible. Members’ feedback on their catches to the Head Bailiff or Honorary Secretary would be appreciated and will assist with fishery management of the pond. The heavy weed and proliferation of lilies on this fishery can make angling difficult, but perseverance can show exceptional results. This very pretty pond offers a pleasant place to spend time pursuing the stock comprising approximately 30 Ghost Carp over 14lb and up to 31lb 0oz with the occasional Mirror Carp that cruise around the two islands and the lily pads, with some Roach and occasional Tench also present and even a couple of Pike to 15lb. The Koi Carp are frequently fished for with surface baits and offer some of the most exciting fishing when using this tactic, but make sure you use tackle that will cope with extracting these beasts from the weed.
