Ham Green Lake


Chapel Pill Lane, Pill, BS20 0, North Somerset, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Owned and operated by the local Ham Green Fishing Club in Chapel Hill, the Ham Green Lake actually consists of two lakes. Sometimes going by Ham Green Fisheries, this spot has gone through extensive ownership changes over the years. The current Club has dedicated itself to renovating and refurbishing the fishery.

There is coarse fishing in the top lake and carp fishing in the bottom lake. The road that crosses the bottom lake may be fascinating for history buffs, as it dates back to the Roman Empire. The water was also utilized as a source for the local hospital, which was used to treat patients in the Crimean War.

If history isn’t the ticket, the fishing will be.

Ham Green Lake has been restocked recently, with the top lake receiving an influx of some 11,000 coarse fish. This includes tench, bream, perch, bream, rudd, and roach.

The bottom lake is noted mostly for an extensive carp population.

There is night fishing available upon request at Ham Green Lake.

What size do the fish go to?

There is an estimated 50 carp in the bottom lake, many of which weigh in over 20 pounds.

What tactics work well?

Keepnets are permitted here, but not when fishing for carp.

No nuts, multiple hook rigs, braided mainlines, radios, bathing, swimming, televisions, musical instruments, or guns on Ham Green Lake.

All fish are the property of this site and must be returned to the swim at which they were caught.

Is parking available?

There is a car park at the bottom lake.
