Snowberry Lake is an exclusive and private Carp fishery nestled in the Beds / Bucks / Herts countryside. It is well stocked with young and energetic carp to 30lbs and catfish to over 35lbs.
A small general fishery is included in the same complex for restoring confidence when needed!
Snowberry Lakes comprise in fact of three lakes. The first is Snowberry Lake which was built early in the nineteenth century and has a considerable reputation of being one of Englands most treasured carp lakes. Set in a uniquely private countryside setting, the 2.5 acre lake is certainly one of the most beautiful fisheries in the southern counties. The lake has been managed by a number of keen enthusiasts over the years, the most famous of which was the Carp Catchers alias Richard Walker, Fred J Taylor and friends. More recently, Fourways Fisheries developed the lake along more commercial lines, up until 1992 when the present management team took over.
This team further developed the site by building two adjacent lakes, known as Willow Lake (approx 1 acre) and Stock Lake. The Stock Lake as it name suggests is not in fact a fishery, but a stock pond used to raise new fish stocks for both lakes. But Willow, while only about 1 acre, is a viable fishery in its own right and provides great sport from smaller fish when you need to prove that your fishing tackle really DOES work!
Snowberry Lake has been developed over the last six years by the addition of entirely new fish stocks so almost all of the fish are relatively young and are still growing. Nonetheless, there is an abundance of very healthy twenty pound plus mirror carp, with one or two breaking in to thirty. There are many more doubles and a handful of single figure fish that are growing fast. A number of original catfish survived a major fish kill that took place in 1997 and one of these fish was caught at over 35 pounds in 2006. There are a number of others that top twenty pounds and other single and double figure fish. While there are a few specimen Tench, Perch and Roach, these are uncommon.
