Harefield No2

A 12 foot deep, 50 acre gravel pit adjacent to No1 which has been stocked many times since 1963 when 100 large Carp were introduced.

In the early eighties more Carp were stocked to 5lb. In 1988 a large number of Pike to 18lb were stocked followed by another 1,800 x 12oz Carp and 200 x 18oz Bream during 1989.

In 1992/1993 250 1-3lb & 100 2-4lb Carp were introduced. Many of these carp are now within the 25lb to 35lb bracket with some over 40lb.

In 2012 19 Carp between 13-0 & 17-0.

No 2 is also brimming with hundreds of double figure Bream which are caught on a regular basis. Th winter pike fishing is also spectacular.

The lake is the HAS specimen water with good fish of all species and the majority of the lake can be fished from the comfort of your car with its secure vehicular access.

Best Carp 42-0, Tench 8-14, Bream 12-12, Perch 4-0, Eels 5-13, Pike 29-0, Chub 5-12 and large shoals of Roach to 2-0. The lake is shared with a sailing club, with which we have a good relationship and requires give and take on both sides, so please keep it that way. A map of the countours of the lake is available here.

Access

We as a club have the fishing rights to the lake, however the lake is a shared facility. The Hillingdon Outdoor Activity Centre (from hereon known as the Centre) also uses the water and adjoining land for various pursuits. The boundaries of the Centre are dictated by the fences surrounding their grounds for security reasons. Location wise, our last swim is the "Fox" on the Peat Bank accessed via the "Workings" car park at the northern end of the lake. We have no access to the pylon or beyond until you reach Dews Farm next to the Archery range. This section can be reached by car by entering from Harvill Road into our own car park behind the "Gate" swim, or alternatively by walking the length of the "Railway Bank" from the "Viaduct" car park by the arches at the southern end of the lake. The relationship between the angling club and the management of the Centre is a good one and has been so for a number of years now. They accommodate us with loans of boats etc for working parties when needed and also keep an eye on the lake during the close season chasing off undesirable poachers when seen. On the flip side we tend to look out for "strange" occurrences on their property out of their usual business hours, help with water levels by monitoring the outlet stream, advising members not to leave markers out or to fish at any distance over the top of weed beds if boats are out, retrieving lost tackle a.s.a.p. and also giving the phone number of the Centre to those fishing the lake regularly to report directly of any troublesome kids etc.
