Gary Bayes currently owns and runs the Bayeswater fishery complex which comprises three lakes; the largest, with the island in the middle is a Syndicate Lake. The next biggest is the Day Ticket Lake and the smallest is the Trout/Stock Pond.

Gary has recently also acquired a new venue called Kings Court Reservoir also to be run as a syndicate lake which is being developed for the future as a much sought after special carp lake.

The Day Ticket Lake day has around  5 different 30’s with the best weights being 32, 34, 35, 38 and 38.  Plenty of 25 pounders caught and several fish have put on good weights.  There are some easily recognised fish that seemed to always be scraper 20’s that are now mid 20’s and even after spawning there is a lot of 20’s being caught.

Bayeswater Fishing is located at Generals Farm, Boreham interchange, A12, Springfield junction Chelmsford Essex.

Anyone wishing to view the lakes can do so by appointment only.
