Bullock Farm   DAY TICKET

Bullock Farm Match Lake Bullock Farm comprises of four lakes (91 swims). The match lake, specimen lake, south pool and the new North Pool.
The match and specimen lakes are well stocked with Common, Mirror, Ghost and Crucian Carp as well as Tench, Roach and Rudd. They are set out in such a way that virtually every swim has a feature and you feel as if you have the lake all to yourself ! South pool is more open and an ideal lake for beginners.
Situated on the moors between Clevedon and Yatton, it provides good fishing, (I've had 100lb of Carp in a day) and is within easy reach of Bristol and Weston Super Mare.
Best methods are pole or waggler with meat, bread or sweetcorn for Carp and Tench. Punched bread or maggot for Roach, Rudd and smaller crucians.

Bristol Docks   DAY TICKET

Bristol Bridge and Glass Boat section Bristol Docks offers fishing in the heart of the City, from Baltic Wharf right through to the top of the Feeder Canal where it joins the River Avon. The Docks complex and the Feeder Canal are considered to be enclosed waters and are therefore open all year.
Virtually all coarse species can be found somewhere, in fact the only river fish not yet reported as being caught is Barbel. Even some sea fish notably Flatties and Mullet are likely to take the bait.
The waters here can be very deep so the preferred methods are groundbait feeder or pole although sliding waggler can also be very effective. Being in the centre of town many swims are best fished in the evening as parking is easier. Street lighting allows you to fish comfortably well after dark and there are weekly "starlight matches" held. Contact Tony Rixon, Avon Angling on 01179 517250 for details.

River Kenn (Blind Yeo)   DAY TICKET

Radio mast section of the River Kenn, Strode Road The River Kenn at Clevedon is an easy access pleasure venue. It can produce very good Bream (as shown on Mike Hobbs page) throughout its length. The Strode Road sections above (as shown left), and below the bridge to the outfall, are favourite in the summer months due to weed in the upper reaches.
Of late the number roach in matches has fallen drastically. This is generally put down to the black death (CORMORANTS). But when pleasure fishing you can draw the fish much easier and hemp fishing can still get you double figure nets of hard fighting redfins.
There are also a few Tench and Carp which are just waiting to take the bait offered for Bream and give you a run for your money. In the winter the water level on the Kenn is lowered to drain the moors, it then becomes tidal (and very muddy), but, sport can be excellent when the tide pens the river and the level rises for three or four hours. I once had sixteen Bream for sixty four pounds in an hour and a half, after being biteless for two hours before the high tide backed the river up, slowing it down and raising the level.
Pike fishing is very productive in the winter months, either to lures or deadbaits. Livebaiting is not allowed.


North Somerset Association of Anglers control this water and the permit also covers parts of :- Tickenham Boundary Rhyne, Old River Kenn, Congresbury Yeo, North Drain, as well as Apex Lakes, Newton Lake and Walrow Ponds. Full season ticket holders also get a concession at Bullock Farm Fishery.

Day tickets are £2.50
Seasons £16.00 Senior
£7.00 junior & Senior Citizen
