On 1 June 2012 the lake on Cannon Hill Common became a club fishery for the 2012/13 coarse angling season, and we’ve been working steadily to improve it ever since.
Cannon Hill Lake is an old estate brick pit and it is filled by run off from the park land surrounding it. For many years it was a neglected coarse fishery, full of small silver fish, a handful of carp (up to 8lbs) and a few tench.
Our improvement works have included building floating islands and fishing platforms, planting water lilies and other native plants, and installing an aerator to help fish to survive when oxygen levels get low.
The lake is used for regular club events, and as a training ground for junior anglers.
Fishing is only allowed from the bank alongside the foot path. The other three banks of the lake are formed by a nature reserve and Cannon Hill Lane and are out of bounds.
As this is a club fishery it is no longer available to the general public and you will need to take your club membership card to prove your right to fish the lake. At the moment there are no day tickets.
