The Front Lake is a lovely mature tree lined lake approximately 1 acre in size dug approximately 50 years ago.
Access to the fishery is via a locked gate from Moor Lane Staines, post code TW19 6EF. Parking is available inside the gated area. Please note there is a height restriction on the entry gate.
The Front Lake varies in depth between 3 and 12 feet and is best known for the large tench it contains. In 2012 a 12lb 2 oz specimen was caught and most seasons see at least one double on the bank. The lake also contains a few carp of up to 30 lb in weight some of which are lovely plated mirrors.
The lake doesn’t contain any bream to our knowledge but does contain lots of rudd which during the summer months can give fantastic sport for the younger angler with a fish a chuck on maggot. There is also a small head of pike and perch.
