Carp Fishing at Evesbatch Old Lake, Herefordshire


Picture of 15 pound common carp

  Evesbatch Old Lake is ideally situated, in a quiet corner of Herefordshire near Bishops Frome. It is perfect for the angler who does not require the conveniences of a typical commercial fishery and loves to be at one with nature and the true beauty of our countryside.

  We provide fishing permits for the angler who wishes to fish day or night, from a simple day session, to a week long affair.

  Resident carp run to eighteen pounds, and there are some lovely roach, rudd and eels for the non-dedicated carp angler. The lake is 2 acres in size and in excess of twelve foot deep in places.



  There are eighteen pegs (with plans to add two to the far bank) and parking space for up to ten cars. The lake has recently undergone extensive development work, and vehicular access is now possible to the near bank from pegs 1 to 13. Although it is recommended that a maximum of only four vehicles park on that bank, dry weather only.

  The Old Lake is located just off the A4103 Hereford to Worcester road, midway between the two cities. Leave the A4013 at the signed exit, "Evesbatch," and continue until you reach a left hand turn, over a small bridge. Continue up the steep hill for 100 metres and take the sharp left hand turn opposite the church.
