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 the beautiful 400 acre Coombe Abbey Park, noted for its specimen Pike, Zander, Carp, Tench and Bream.

You can relax in the stunning surroundings of historic Coombe Abbey 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 lines one side of the lake. It is now home to a wealth of wildlife and is an attraction all year round.

Please note that the day ticket car park closes daily at Dusk and reopens at Dawn.

Access for non-anglers

Guest tickets are available for day ticket anglers and these can be purchased from the ticket machine. Guests are also permitted on our Full Season Ticket + Guest permit. Guests are not permitted to fish on either of these tickets.
