Features: Drainage Inlet, Overhanging trees
Lake Size: 2 acres
Lake Depth: 8-10ft
Swims: 8


Harmers Pond is teaming with carp, roach, rudd after having recently being restocked after receiving funds from a lottery grant. The carp can often be seen cruising the surface in the warm summer months and hiding in the shade of the overhanging trees. Successful techniques include ledgering boilies under the trees, and surface feeding bread and dog biscuits. Surface feeding can be a little hazardous when the ducks are hungry. The average weight of each carp caught is 6lb to 12lb. The largest carp caught from Harmers Reservoir was a recently taken common carp weighing 21lb. The match fish can easily be caught by float fishing maggots, sweetcorn and lobworms.

user reviews

"nice place to fish"

"A nice place to fish, some good swims, the only down side is the
constant through fare of people walking pretty much directly behind you. Not one to fish if you enjoy a bit of hush.".
