Shawfields Lakes


Ash, Farnborough, Surrey GU14 4DP, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

There are two lakes that make up the Shawfields Lakes, located to the west of Ash, adjacent to North Town, between the A331 and the River Blackwater.

Shawfields Big Lake (Ash)

The Shawfields Big Lake was once a component of the Willow Park amusement park complex, and a gravel pit. It features deep channels and a large number of islands, and it offers some of the best fishing amidst breathtaking scenery. The profusion of lily pads is one of the most prominent and eye-catching characteristics of Shawfields Lake. Another attraction is the numerous islands, all of which are excellent fishing spots. This beautiful body of water is home to carp, tench, crucians, bream, roach, perch, and rudd. The lake has something to offer anglers of all skills.

Lake Shawfields, Small Lake (Ash)

The small lake’s depths range from three to seven feet, there is abundant weed growth, and there is one large island and two smaller ones. There are a few carp, some crucians, tench, pike, roach, and rudd in addition to bream and perch. Because no records have been kept or catch reports made for some years, no one is aware of the maximum size that these fish can reach.
