A 3 Lake Fishery set in the heart of the Essex countryside.

Birds Green fishery really does cover every eventuality offering everything from full English Breakfasts in the Café, to the onsite Tackle shop, 2 specimen Carp Lakes and one of the Counties best Match fisheries.

Just bring yourself and your tackle and the rest is here waiting.

Top Lake is the specimen Carp fishing lake, and is available on a Day Ticket with night fishing for members. Developed and opened in 1990 and maintained for carp fisherman in mind. The Lake is Approximately 2 acres with several fish nearing 30lbs with an average weight of about 15lbs, with depths averaging 6ft making it a great all year water. The fish in Top Lake have seen most rigs and bait and do not throw themselves in the net, but they are more than catcheable on good quality frozen Boilies, Meat, Corn and Maggot. Zig Rigs, Method Feeders, and single hook baits all work well. With regard to features, look for hard areas amongst the light silt and neglect the margins at your peril.

Bottom Lake is a bit more of a mixed fishery, dominated still mainly by Carp; Bottom Lake also offers fantastic Roach and Tench fishing as well. Bottom Lake holds a much larger head of Carp than Top Lake, but with a slightly lower average weight of about 11lbs. Traditional methods work very well on this Lake with worms and big bunches of Maggots taking their fair share of fish, oily pellet, Method feeders, PVA bags and crushed Boilie also account for an awful lot of fish. Bottom Lake is very much a runs water offering the chance of an awful lot of fish, with a great head of 20lb + fish. With regards to the Roach and Tench, Maggot, Bread flake and Corn are the most successful methods.

Bridge Lake is our Match and pleasure fishery offering the potential for exceptionally large bags of fish, Bridge Lake is heavily stocked with single figure Carp, 5lb+ Tench, specimen Roach, Rudd and Perch and offers the real chance of some cracking coarse fish with Roach over 3lbs, Perch over 4lbs, Tench over 9lbs, Carp over 20lbs and Crucian Carp over 4lbs

Also onsite is Total Fishing Tackle, the shop has now been running for 4 years and offers cutting edge products from all of the Uk’s biggest manufactures, with bait, worm, maggots and hundreds of other different options, as well as a mind boggling amount of end tackle you really can rest assured that if there is anything you need or fancy, it can all be found on site! The shop is situated right in the middle of the three lakes and with hundreds of people each week just to visit the shop, it really is the hub of the fishery!

The guys in the shop combine over 50years specimen fishing experience and go out of their way to ensure you are in the best possible position to bag plenty of Birds Green Carp!

Catch Report/Reviews

  1. I fished bottom lake yesterday 10/09/2014 i just want people to no that birds green fishery has gone right down hill, there is no longer a tackle shop on site there appears to be a distict lake of tench. When i spoke to people fishing the lake they all said that the owners are no longer interested in the fishery and that shows when you walk around the fishery. The fishery has still got a good head of carp but mostly lower doubles.
