Ashmead Fishery offers the angler an unrivalled opportunity to fish for some of the UK’s finest carp, in 17 acres of beautiful wetland, deep within the Somerset Levels.
Bookings are available from March until November each year and with a maximum of only 7 anglers fishing at any time, Ashmead provides a unique carp fishing experience that brings the angler close to nature in a spectacular wild environment.
The fishery was stocked originally with fingerling carp from a Surrey trout farm in 1971 and has never been stocked again. The Ashmead stock has developed as one of the finest in the country, producing mirror carp to over 50lbs and common carp to over 40lbs.
We are always happy to answer any question you may have about Ashmead Fishery, so please send us a message.
