At four and a half acres, Colnbrook West Lake is filled with fish-holding features

These include small bays, snaggy areas, small gravel bars and silt patches that can be home to large beds of bloodworm and other naturals.

Overhanging trees and beds of Norfolk reeds are favourite spots for fish to hold up and in the summer they can easily be observed cruising just beneath the surface near the large plateau in the centre of the lake.

Colnbrook has ten swims including five doubles, four of which feature behind-swim parking.

There is a three day limit for any swim, after which the angler must move 90° around the lake.

The main car park is at the front of the complex and is accessed through a security gate. Further parking and toilet facilities are situated along the riverbank.

Colnbrook West Lake has around 300 Carp up to 40lb plus.

Bailiffs’ Advice


Two most popular swims are Point one and the Island. In hot weather The A4 and The Bailiffs swim catch well. In winter; deep margins produce the most fish.

Methods and baits

Fish meal and nut based boilies. Well prepared particles and pellet.
NB: No sacking or retaining fish at any time.
