Tockenham Reservoir near Lyneham lies just three miles from M4 intersection 16 via the A3102. This beautiful 12.5 acre lake, surrounded by oak woodland, was created in 1810 to provide water for the Wilts and Berks Canal. It was purchased by us in 1980 when we were Bristol, Bath and Wiltshire Amalgamated Anglers. It has since been developed into a magnificent fishery stocked with carp to 30lb, tench to 7lb, bream to 8lb, plus roach, perch and crucian carp. All fishing is from platforms, including three purpose built for the wheelchair disabled, and there are good parking facilities.

This is a good lake for all types of course and carp fishing. I've caught many carp to 16lb. Some say there are 30lb carp but I've yet to see anyone catch bigger than 20lb. You can bag 10 to 15 carp on a day session...if you're in the right place!

Mr T

Great carp lake.....haven't seen a 30 but had a few near to 20!! When it's hot go to the top!



A good quality boilie, bottom bait or pop up will get you lots of bites! Pellets can bring in the nuisance fish like bream but can get a few nice sized fish. Try a tuna stick mix...the carp can't help themselves!
