Find Fishing Lakes Near Me by County

At Fishery Guide, we thought long and hard about the best way to display our chosen fisheries to make things easier for our users. That’s why we list every fishery under the county it is in.

Whether you are looking for fisheries in the county where you live or are spending time on holiday in the UK, you can simply head to the relevant county section and find all the great fisheries nearby. We’ve done the hard work, so you can find the best fisheries by clicking a few buttons. It is that simple to use Fishery Guide.

The following are among some of the most popular counties for fishing:

  • Kent, the Garden of England, is home to many fine carp fisheries and is one of the premier fly-fishing destinations in the UK. You’ll find a great choice of venues easily reached by the major road networks, yet in some truly beautiful and tranquil settings.
  • Lincolnshire and Norfolk are counties riddled with fens – wetlands unique to these areas and few others in the UK – that are often drained by man-made waterways, which are prime fishing spots for pike and other coarse species.
  • Hampshire has some of the oldest established fishing clubs in the UK and offers a wide variety of carp, fly, and some prime pike fishing destinations in lovely surroundings.
  • Cheshire and adjoining Greater Manchester in the northwest are great fishing counties with plenty of choices and wonderfully pleasant locations. This area is well-served by motorway networks, and there are also some city-centre fishing lakes in municipal parks.

Every county in the UK features watercourses that feed lakes or canals, rivers where fisheries manage a stretch, and other waters such as reservoirs and estate ponds where fishing can be enjoyed. Simply pick the county you want to fish in and browse the complete list of local fisheries.

Carp Fishing Near Me

Carp fishing is the most popular form of fishing in the UK. The thrill of landing that big fish you’ve hunted for months is something that cannot be matched! Carp fisheries are plentiful across the UK, and at Fishery Guide, we’ve taken the strain out of finding one close to where you live or are taking a holiday.

Many carp fisheries also offer accommodation in lodges or caravan sites, and where this is so, we will make it clear in the description. You’ll find carp fisheries on the site of old country estates, in former gravel pits, reservoirs and many more, and the rivers and canals across the country.

Where possible, we will give you information on the size and species of fish you can expect to land at the fisheries and the facilities at the venue. As all anglers know, some fisheries offer a café, bait shop, and toilet or shower facilities, yet many of the more remote and best are not so equipped!

Whilst doing our research into fisheries in the local area, we came across some tucked away in beautiful spots that we didn’t know existed, so be prepared to discover new places to fish near you that you never knew were there!
