Dove Lake Hawkhurst Fish Farm in Kent
If you’re looking for a more relaxed peaceful days fishing away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Lake then Dove Lake is the one for you. At two acres in size it’s slightly smaller than the Main Lake but don’t be fooled into thinking that’s a reflection of the size of fish! With both Common and Mirror carp over 36lb this specimen carp water offers some of the best specimen fishing in Kent and Sussex. Our current lake records are: a whopping 66lb Catfish caught in October 2020 by Tom Jenner (previously: 63lb 12oz Catfish caught by Dave Honeysett in April 2019), a 38lb Mirror caught most recently by Daniel Dowley in September 2018, and a 34lb 8oz Common caught by Tom Marshall in April 2019 (a 36lb 8oz Common was stocked in May 2019 but is yet to be caught!).
Don’t be fooled into thinking the fish will give themselves up easily, as a stealthy approach is recommended to trip up these elusive monsters. With two islands and attractive reed lined margins, there are plenty of areas to target in your quest for a big specimen. There are 8 swims to choose from but we allow a maximum of 6 anglers at any one time to prevent over crowding and give anglers their own water to fish to. The depth ranges from 2 feet around the islands and shelves down to 8 feet in the deeper holes which are worth finding in the cooler months. The bottom can be described as silty clay with no weed present although the margins can be quite leafy so pop-ups are worth a try. We are sure that if the Main Lake doesn’t appeal to you then the Dove Lake should definitely be worth a try!
