Fishery Information

Seymour Fishery, located less than a mile from Natural England’s SSSI Huntspill River on the outskirts of the Somerset Levels, is a unique fishing venue with abundant wildlife. The 1-acre lake is situated within a 3-acre plot surrounded by farmland and fields. Its rich diversity of substrates – from weed, silt, gravel, clay to lily pads – offers a challenging yet rewarding fishing experience. The lake has 5 purpose-built swims and is stocked with approximately 40 hand-picked homegrown Carp, the largest weighing over 35lb.

What size do the fish go to?

The Carp in Seymour Fishery can grow up to 35lb+. With an overall stock of approximately 40 fish, the fishing is challenging yet rewarding.

What tactics work well?

Given the diverse substrates and the prevalence of weed in the lake, experience in fishing weedy venues is essential. Tactics that work well in such conditions might include using pop-up rigs or chod rigs that can present baits effectively above the weed.

What facilities are on site?

The fishery boasts a number of facilities including a toilet/shower block by the car park, access to mains electricity and a fridge for food and drink storage. The lake is fully secured by a purpose-built electric otter fence with large lockable gates at the entrance. In addition, there is a large decking area for socializing and super-fast fiber broadband. A BBQ facility is also available on site, so bring your own coal.

Is parking available?
