Lake John Fishery is one the most reputable fisheries in Essex, and has been quoted by the Angling Times as the premier silver fish venue in the south of England established in 1992 Lake John comprises of two lakes both mixed fishery’s.

Top lake is two and a half acres of water and has a varied fish stocks with a good stock of carp, the biggest carp topping the scales at 46lb 4oz’s with plenty of bream and tench to keep the roach and the rudd company and even perch have topped the scales at over 4lb.

Bottom lake is a smaller more secluded lake only 14m wide and set up more of a match style water but again a mixed fishery with plenty of good sport to be had, this is a truly great place to catch to your hearts content, all set in the peace and quiet of the Epping Forest on the very edge of Hertfordshire, Essex and London boarders.

We are located just outside the M25 why not give it ago, the fishery is open Tuesday to Sunday every week but closed every Monday including Bank Holidays opening and closing time are varied depending on the time of the year check the contents of our newly revamped website for more details, enjoy the website and then why not come and enjoy the fishing at Lake John Fishery for real, remember all E.A. rules apply at the lake and you need a valid rod licence before fishing the lakes
