Our lake makes our campsite a popular destination for keen fishermen. This tranquil lake, affectionately known as “Smithy’s Lake”, was dug in 1983 and is an acre in size. The lake is generously stocked with carp, tench and bream and is a magnet for nature. Expect to see moorhens, mallard ducks, mute swans, coots, king fisher and grey heron.
On a sunny day sit and watch the emperor dragonflies, mayflies, butterflies and water boatman dancing at the water’s edge. Tadpoles are abundant in spring and fascinating to watch. The natural environment encourages a wealth of flora throughout the year: the banks being home to yellow flag iris, water avens, meadowsweet, bullrushes, birdsfoot trefoil, teasels and many more wild species.
Enjoy the beauty of the lake in the early morning and see the mist rising. Or, sit and enjoy the peace of Smithy’s Lake throughout the day and watch the fish jumping – a perfect spot to fish and unwind.
The lake closes at 9pm.
A ticket must be purchased to fish. Bishops Green Farm Fishing Rules apply.
