Crowsheath Fishery is a Stillwater fishery located in Essex. Most noted for Carp/Specimen, Coarse and Pike/Predator fishing, Catfish, Common Carp to 38.8 pound and Mirror Carp to 42 pound are amongst the key species on offer at the venue. This is a Day and Night Ticket fishery with limited memberships for anglers wanting to put a whole season into the lake. There are 3 lakes on the fishery which are an 8 and a half acre specimen carp water, a acre and a half Pure catfish water containing the U.K. record mandarin wels catfish at 72 pound, and finally a half acre pike lake with pike up to 22 pound which is perfect for lure fishing or live and dead baiting. The owners have taken steps to facilitate disabled access with flat grassed banks and decked platforms on every swim. A trolly service is also available during the drier months to take you to and from your swim with all your fishing gear. A selection of qualified Fishing Coach's may be available - please call for details. The site features on-site toilets and showers, fresh water drinking taps, large bins so you dont have to take your rubbish home with you, plenty of secure parking monitored by CCTV and floodlights and 24 hour on call bailiffs.
