Hawkhurst Fishery

Hawkhurst Fishery is a large fishery sculptured into tranquil Kent countryside settings. Hawkhurst Fishery also known as Hawkhurst Fish Farm is a seven lake fishery. The complex contains a match lake, three junior ponds, and three lakes with large specimen fish. The waters between them hold mirror carp to 54lb, common carp to 51lb, grass carp to 22lb, catfish to 88lb, tench to 9lb, small roach, rudd and perch, and the odd eel to 6lb. Apart from the Specimen Lake, the water is closed from mid December to mid Febuary. This scenic complex contains picturesque features such as gardens and a waterfall as well as supporting a host of wildlife such as ducks, swans, swifts, swallows, kingfishers and lots more. The lakes have a number of oxygenating springs pumping flumes of bubbles from the bottom to the surface. These pumps create mini jacuzzis which the fish seem to be attracted to. The complex is based around a large cafe that overlooks the Main Lake.
