|Hazel Court Ponds
Vale of Glamorgan,
|Hazel Court Ponds is a complex of 6 ponds, catering for the pleasure angler to the specialist Catfish and Carp anglers, with a wide variety of fish species including Bream to 8lb, Tench to 8lb 8oz, Golden Tench to 7lb, Roach and Rudd to a very respectable size along with Orfe to 5lb and the elusive Chub and Hybrid can pop up just about anywhere.
It is a fishery hard to categorize as so many species inhabit the waters, but the mainstay is carp in all of its colours and varieties.
A big-fish venue if youâ€™re up to it! Catfish have now been caught at a massive 69lb with others being caught at 54lb and 48lb during 2009.
To accommodate the pleasure of the growing number of keen carp enthusiasts, one of the four original spring-fed ponds was turned into a Specimen Lake of three-quarter acres. Heavily stocked with large fish including, mirror carp, ghost carp and a wide variety of koi carp. It regularly yields hefty catches of 20lb-plus residents, enough to satisfy the most eager of carp anglers, with top weights now reaching up to 28lbs.
The new Bottom Lake offers small Carp and Bream, all about 5lb in weight, although this pond has already produced carp to 16lb.
All lakes are available for night fishing.
Access to all water is good with open grassy banks - quite suitable for the disabled and enough room for the longest pole. All ponds are up to 6ft deep with silt bottoms.
We have adequate parking and toilet facilities. Also tea, coffee and a small selection of bait are available to buy.
Gates open at 7am and close at 8pm or dusk (whichever comes first)
Please note: Between 1st November to 31st March the fishery is now open on Saturday and Sunday.
