Local Anglers & Angling Clubs near Kingsway

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

I thought it would be interesting to add a thread where local anglers can chat and help find local Angling in the area. I have found some places to fish locally and will add links to their websites below. If any local Anglers know of more places worth fishing, or local angling shops near Kingsway, please add your comments.

Also does anyone know anything about the Farm Pond near the Barn Owl Pub; Does the Farmer Sell Day tickets to fish the pond?

Local Fishing Links

Stroud & District AC
The nearest local Angling club I have found to Kingsway so far is Stroud & District AC who have a good stretch of the Gloucester-Sharpness Canal at 2.8 miles away in Hardwicke. To find out more about the Club and the fishing they have, follow this link: www.stroudangling.co.uk.

Harescombe Fisheries
There are 4 ponds at Harescombe Fisheries, which is 4.6 miles from the centre of Kingsway.
The Match Lake has been introduced in order to leave the original 3 lakes open to pleasure fishermen at all times.
The Pleasure Lakes:
Field Lake Well stocked with a variety of species. Carp to 20+ pounds have been landed on this lake.
Pasture Lake is the smallest in size but there are some hard-fighting carp in this lake.
Meadow Lake is popular with anglers for its large head of double-figure carp & tench.

I hope this thread will be of interest to Fellow Kingsway Anglers.

Kind Regards,

    That sounds good Clive 🙂 Thanks for asking the local farmer near the Barn Owl about his farm pond Will definitely be worth a cast if he gets permission to allow day ticket fishing on his ponds. Look forward to hearing more news on this.

    Hi Johnboy,

    I had this response from the owner of the Farm Pond (near the Barn Owl):

    …was thinking of doing fish tickets but need to set up with environment agency first to get all the permissions in place… Definitely for the future, yes.

    I will let you know soon as I hear more 🙂

    Hi Clive,

    Thanks for adding my Post.

    My wife and I both enjoy our fishing and currently fish five clubs, some local and some farther afield. We Prefer fishing club waters rather than commercial, as we find them less pressured and more of a challenge, as you don’t know what you are going to catch. I have fished some commercial waters in the past like WatersMeet, Staunton Court & Harescombe and remember when fishing Harescombe a few times not long after Chris had them built. I have not heard of the pool near Churchdown. Sounds interesting, I will have a look on google later, cheers. There are 3 lakes near Hartpury College that are also worth fish on a day ticket, which are accessed through a field track (see link).

    Also Bulley Lane Fishery is also worth a cast for Carp Day tickets on the Banks of the pool at Bulley Lane: (see link).


    Hi Johnboy,

    Thanks for the post.

    I was a keen fisherman myself, but haven’t been since around 2001 🙁 The main reasons I stopped were personal, but also partly the lack of good local fishing (we used to travel to the Cotswolds/Oxford for good carp fishing)!

    I’ve known Chris (Harescombe Fisheries) for around 25 years, he’s a great guy and works hard to keep his lakes and fish in good condition.

    There’s a (very well stocked) carp lake in Staunton Court that allows day/night fishing (see link).

    There was also a good lake for beginners (where I first took my sons), but I don’t see anything online for it. It is quite small, but was well-stocked and easy access… I don’t know if the owner still allows fishing but it’s located on Hucclecote Lane, Churchdown, which is: HERE.

    Also on the Staunton Road in Hartpury, there are 3 lakes in Hartpury at the Watersmeet County Inn
