Good fishing in lake for tench, roach, rudd, pike and perch. Boardwalk leads from the garden through reedbeds to our private jetty with stunning views across and down the lake with reed-lined margins fringed with water lilies. 


Hawes Water lake is a SSSI and so unlike many stillwaters, where the coarse fishing close season (March 15th - June 16th) is now ignored, here it remains a statutory obligation. We also ask visitors to observe our fishing rules which are designed to protect both fish and the environment - eg barbless hooks, no keepnets, lead-free weights, no electronic bite alarms, etc. Please ask for a copy of our fishing leaflet if you plan to fish on the lake.
