Ashmead 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.
The rich environment of Ashmead means that the carp spawn successfully almost every year and a limited stock of young carp removed from the fishery are now available for sale to other high quality carp fisheries.
