Bromeswell Lakes have four different lakes to offer those who love to go carp fishing or pleasure fishing. The most popular of the four would be Horseshoe Lake. It has 26 pegs that are spaced comfortably and accessible to most angler with a gentle sloping gras bank. It is not a very deep lake only getting to 4 feet at the most. It contains a lot of carp with some tench, roach, bream and rudd mixed in for variety.

Willow Lake is especially designed for pole anglers and is another shallow lake. It has a nice central island and is set up more like a canal type of fishing area and is most often used for fishing matches. It gets as deep as five feet near the island and the margins being the most shallow part of the lake. This one is ideal for families who want to come out and do some carp fishing together. It is great for the beginner since the carp stocked here only get to a little over 12 pounds. There is also a few roach and rudd and a number of tench to add variety.

Hazel Pond is a small and intimate body of water and is another one that is great for the family or for dad and son to come out together and have a day of carp fishing together. The fish are much smaller in this lake and especially good for teaching the young ones how to fish. There are a lot of roach, tench and small carp that don’t weigh much more than 4 pounds, so it is ideal for the newest of anglers.

Birch Pond is similar to Hazel Pond except that the roach are very large and can add a little bit of challenge for the beginner, which could be a good spot to bring the youngsters that have been fishing for a little while and want just a bit more of a challenge. There are also a large amount of small carp and tench.
