Combwich Ponds


Sedgemoor Road, Bridgwater, Somerset TA6 5AB, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Combwich Pond sounds like a little pool of water, but it is actually a 14-acre lake. There are a number of features to fish to on this venue, including small islands and plenty of overhanging trees in the margins.

There are also plenty of fish species to fish for, including roach, perch, carp, bream and tench. Targeting these fish in such a big lake can be tricky, but Combwich Pond is nicely stocked, so it is a great lake for beginners and veterans.

What size do the fish go to?

There’s a good stock of carp in this lake. Many are well into their 20s. The largest catch recently is 28lbs. However, the local anglers are pretty confident there are much bigger carp in this lake. There are also some lovely sized bream and tench in this lake too.

What tactics work well?

As this is a 14-acre venue, fishing to features is a good way of finding the fish. There are plenty of reed beds around the lake. There are also small islands that are worth exploring too.

The carp in this venue move around the lake a lot, looking for food. So, try and find a smooth patch of gravel, bait up and present your hookbaits perfectly. The carp will move in on your spot soon.

What facilities are on site?

Combwich Pond is now run by Bridgwater Angling Association, which aims to improve the on-site facilities in the near future.

Is parking available?

Yes, there is a car park on Wharf Road.
