Fishery Information

Located on the River Lea, the Kings Weir Fishery is a mixed coarse location noted for plenty of specimens.

Fishing can be done in the weir pool or along a stretch of river downstream, with stock including barbel, chub, bream, dace, roach, pike, European eels, and gudgeon.

Fishing is also available on the stillwater Holyfield Lake, which contains tench, carp, bream, and pike – all specimens.

There are nine swims on the weir pool, each of which are available on day ticket or yearly membership basis.

The Langridge/Holyfield Lake is a mostly unfished spot sitting next to the River Lea. This is a syndicate lake, with a waiting list for tickets.

What size do the fish go to?

Barbel up to 16 pounds have been pulled from the weir pool, while chub in excess of six pounds turn up in good numbers.

Double-digit pike are also in the running, along with perch up to three pounds.

Fishing on Holyfield has turned up carp in surplus of 40 pounds.

What tactics work well?

Barbel is popular along the east bank in the weir pool. Particle bait as feed in a bait dropper works out well, but when the water warms it’s time for hemp, corn, maggots, and pellet.

Big chub turn up on the west bank portion of the pool. Fish tight to the tree, although aiming downstream is beneficial when the water gets high.

Use landing nets and unhooking mats at all times.

Please take home all litter.

Is parking available?

There is a locked car park at the Kings Weir Fishery.
