Ashington, Northumberland NE63 9AT, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The QEII is ran by Wansbeck and Cramlington Angling Club and is by the side of a pub. What more could you want? Its the perfect place to fish and then head next door for a pint and discuss all those fish that you “nearly” caught but got away.

The lake is large in size at 40 acres and due to its size its shared with watersports users but there is still plenty of room to fish out of their way.

In the lake you can find carp, bream, roach, rudd, tench, perch and pike.

Fishing here is said to be challenging, just due to the size but it can be very rewarding.

Its also a lovely quiet place to fish and feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but in truth you are not that far away from the busy town of Ashington.

What size do the fish go to?

We checked the angling clubs record to see if the QEII held any records. We found the following big fish:

Pike to 33lb
Perch to 2lb
Carp to 25lb
Roach to 2lb

What facilities are on site?


Is parking available?

1 thought on “The QEII”

  1. I see the biggest perch from QEII is shown as 2lb, is this still so? I have caught them to 1lb11oz and would like to beat the existing fish this year. Who should I advise any big fish to.
