Coombe Pool Fishery operates a traditional close season. The fishery is open for anglers from 16 June to 14 March. The Lindley Bank (season ticket holders only) closes on 31 December in keeping with the management of the Heron standing ground in the area.
Coombe Pool Fishery is a mature estate lake covering 80 acres set in a beautiful 400 acre Country Park, noted for its specimen pike, zander, carp, tench and bream.
You can relax in the stunning surroundings of historic Coombe Country Park while you fish the spectacular lake, which was originally designed as part of the landscape by Capability Brown. The lake is part of the designated Site of Special Scientific Interest which covers the Heronry and protected woodland that line one side of the lake. It is now home to a wealth of wildlife and is an attraction all year round.
Access for non-anglers
Coombe Pool Fishery operates a strict "no guests" rule. This means that only visitors who are actually fishing and hold a ticket and rod license may be in the area during the season. However following a successful trial in 2015, special access is being granted to the public for walking around the woodland and dam wall path in the fishery to form a 5km circular walk around the park on specified dates.
Consultation was carried out during the trial with park visitors, anglers, residents and relevant advisory bodies with overwhelmingly positive feedback in favour of extending this access. Where there were concerns, the park has taken measures to reduce the level of negative impact on anglers, residents and the local wildlife. Walkers have been given guidance on the conditions of the walk and by limiting access to outside of the Heron breeding season and the frequency of access, the impact of the increased footfall is minimal. This decision was communicated to all season ticket holders on the mailng list at the beginning of the season.
The walk dates for 2016/2017 between 10am and 3pm are:
