My Kingfisher Lake Experience


Please leave comments here about the ‘Kingfisher Lake.’ This Specimen Lake is approximately 3 ½ acres in size with seventeen large swims. The lake has been constructed from two smaller lakes with two islands offering plenty of underwater features ranging in depth from 2 – 10 feet.

All swims feature compacted bark chippings, and offer a generous space to allow pitching of bivvies. There is also a new  walkway around the lake allowing clean and easier walking access. The current stock levels offer a number of carp to 34lb, a good head of 20’s and lots of mid to high doubles. This lake also offers a good amount of other species including perch to 5lb.

  1. Just come back from 30 hrs on Kingfisher lake and can’t recommend the place enough. The facilities are the cleanest I have ever seen at a fishery and the food is great. Dave and Jo couldn’t do enough for us, they are a true credit to their fishery. The fishing was good too, we had 4 fish between us including a lovely 30lb common which my mate caught. The only thing I will have against the place is my mate will now have his photo in the lodge and I’m not going to hear the last of it.

  2. First time visit to Mousehole Lakes. Wow, an absolute diamond venue and first class service. Friendly staff and anglers, free hot drinks on arrival, second to none facilities and loads of tips to make the session as seamless as possible. The fishing wasn’t bad either!

  3. Done 4 days at Kingfisher 6 fish. Many thanks to all the staff for their help, the food was brilliant. Thanks again Nigel and Viv.

  4. It was my first time at Mousehole Lakes and just went for a day ticket with my 13 year old son, it had been such a hot day and we kept seeing big fish cruising along the top.

    There were only a few anglers and nothing was happening. Then out of nowhere one rod screamed off my sons right hand rod. He landed a 15lb mirror, a lovely looking fish breaking his PB. He was so happy it made the day a great one. On top of that the people and facilities are fantastic, toilet and shower block, vending machines, cafe, microwave and a full size fridge. will be going back as soon as possible.

    Great venue.

  5. This was our first and definitely not our last visit to Mousehole Lakes!

    We were warmly welcomed by Joanne the day before our visit and invited to have a look around the complex. We met Keith the bailiff who talked through the recent fishing activity. We then spoke with some of the regular visitors who were also really helpful

    Joanne kindly managed to accommodate 4 swims for us in the area we wanted, again nothing was too much trouble for anyone. The swims were all of good size and all in great condition

    The food, toilets and complex were excellent and everyone was really friendly.

    3 of the 4 of us caught with me catching my PB of a 18lb Carp! Happy Days!

    Thanks again to everyone at Mousehole lakes.

  6. First time fishing at Mousehole Lakes and what a breath of fresh air it has been. Dave and Joanne have created a wonderful complex with superb facilities and a very welcoming atmosphere. All the staff were always more than happy to assist and nothing was too much trouble.

    Thanks to all including Keith and Stuart. The fishing too is fantastic as I ended up landing fish up to 27lb 7oz. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mousehole Lakes to anyone and I will certainly be back again

    Many thanks

    This was our first time at Mousehole Lakes and we couldn’t ask for more of a nice bunch of people. Great service!

    Caught a range of fish between 7lb to 19lb. Had a full English breakfast brought round to our swim and we couldn’t believe how well it was cooked. 5 star facilities. Ice creams on the bank delicious! So thanks for having us and we will definitely be back!!

  8. Fished kingfisher lake for the first time and had one and 14.5lb.

    Absolute brilliant complex, all the staff are very friendly and had such a laugh with them. The food court and toilets are very clean, the food is very nice and reasonably priced.

    Will definitely be fishing the compex again and recommend it to other anglers

  9. I have been carp fishing for over 44 years and i can say that this is by far the best place i have been to. The owners Dave and Joanne, the bailiffs Keith and Phil really care, unlike a lot of fisheries that just want your money. All of them have time to walk round and have a chat. The complex is second to none. Even all the anglers are friendly, which is rare now.

    The food is brilliant, the facilities are great and the fish are in tip top condition. I have been going there for over 2 years now. Every time you go there is something more done to the complex. Can’t wait for October when i can get there again for another 4 days.

  10. Fished Mousehole the other week for the first time but defo will not be the last. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. The food from the cafe was first class, quickly served and cheap.

    The bailiffs were first class with advice and tips. All three of us caught and every fish was in mint condition. The complete package was very good value compared to other local fisheries.

    Thank you.

  11. Went on bank holiday monday, stunning lakes well run, very clean and keen to help in anyway and the food was puka fair priced and brought to the swim with a smile what more can you ask for will defo be back asap thanks richard tight lines

  12. I used to fish Mousehole when Roger owned it, but since Dave and Joanne took over it has become a million times better in all aspects and a real pleasure to fish.

    The bailiffs Keith and Phil always make you welcome and let you know how the lakes have been doing. I just want to say thanks to Dave and Joanne for all they have done, I cannot see myself fishing anywhere else.

    Thanks again
