A fishery that helps London get around

Gaywoods Fishery is a manmade water which is located in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire. Interestingly, the ballast which was taken out of the lake was used in the construction of the M25, so who knows how many times you may have driven over it?! All you historians will therefore know that the lake was constructed in the early 80s. The water is around 4.5 acres in size, with average depths of 12ft – there are areas where this increases to 35ft, so depending on the time of year you may or may not want to fish the deeper water.

The water is stocked with a very wide range of species, so should cater for most anglers needs. During the colder months, if the carp aren’t feeding there are plenty of silverfish to target. On site there is ample car parking with CCTV, toilets and a snack cafe serving hot and cold food.
