Coombe Pool Fishery has now re-opened with the following conditions in place as per the Angling Trust statement issued on 7 January 2021 and Government guidance:

  • This is strictly limited to local fishing.
  • We are in a National Lockdown and this must be respected. The law requires a reasonable excuse to leave your home or penalties will apply.
  • The Government has recognised that fishing can be seen as exercise, which is expressly permitted under the lockdown rules, although outdoor recreation is not.
  • Organised sporting gatherings are prohibited so there will be no match fishing.
  • The exercise is limited to once a day so strictly no overnight fishing at Coombe Pool Fishery.
  • To remain within the law you should follow Government guidance, and only fish locally within the district where you live. If you have no local fishing available, then you will have to take your daily exercise in other ways.

If you would like to receive a new season ticket application form, please email [email protected] to request an application pack.

Please note that there is strictly no pike or zander fishing permitted until 1 October.

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 line 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

Coombe Pool Fishery operates a strict 'no guests' rule. This means that only visitors who are actually fishing and hold either a valid day or season ticket and valid rod licence may be in this area during the season.
