Ham Green Lake (or Lakes, as it is split in two) has been around a long time and is a very natural and beautiful venue. We know that the road crossing the bottom lake was originally Roman. The middle of the lake divides the boundary between Pill and Abbots Leigh. The lake was used as a water supply for the Hospital in Ham Green. Ham Green Hospital was used to treat patients returning from the Crimean war, it was also an isolation hospital. I used to fish the lake way back in the 1960's. The lake was owned by the City of Bristol Angling Club and you had to also get a day ticket from Veal's fishing tackle shop. Over the year's many things's have happened to the lake and has changed hand's a few times. At present, it is owned by Bill Hunt. Bill and his bailiff Tom have done wonders to bring it up to a fantastic venue to fish. The lake is split in two have made it possible to create the top lake as a course lake and the bottom lake as a carp/course lake. The top lake was recently restocked with over 11,000-course fish, a mixed batch of Roach, Rudd, Bream, Perch and Tench. Ham Green Lake is primarily a coarse fishing lake that has carp. A lot of carp anglers fish the lake. The bottom lake has approximately 50 carp up to 20lb.plus. If you wish to night fish the lake you must inform Bill first. There is car parking at the end of the bottom lake.All nets must be dipped-see Bill or Tom.
