Gold Valley Lakes

Gold Lane, Government Road, Aldershot, Hampshire, GU11 2PT

There are five different lakes available for fishing at Gold Valley Lakes, each holding a good number of fish for an enjoyable day's fishing. 

Gold Valley has 180 professionally constructed fishing platforms on the thirty-two acre landscaped complex. There is secure and safe parking for over 300 cars, all parked within the grounds of the Springlakes Country Club boundaries. There is a licensed bar with ladies and gents toilets. The lakes are available for day and night fishing, club bookings, league bookings and corporate days or just a fun get together, all of which can be followed by a prize giving, private buffet or meal in the Springlakes bar or function room which over looks the lakes. Pre match breakfasts or mid day meals can also be booked and the bar area is open daily for refreshments.

Gold Lake

An original natural lake that was extended in the early 1930s’. Depths now vary between 3ft and 8ft with forty-five well-spaced swims around the six-acre lake. All pegs can produce on the waggler whether fished as wag & mag up in the water or fished at a fuller depth over groundbait or loose feed. One of the most popular methods on Gold lake is a float rod of 13ft to 20ft, fished close in with luncheon meat or worm. Some big pleasure catches (60 or 70 fish a day) have been taken on this reasonably easy way to fish, the favourite pegs for this method are on the canal bank (pegs 1 – 23). Gold lake is favoured by the majority of night or long stay anglers who target the big Carp, double rod fishing in conjunction with boilies or meat resulting in many personal bests being achieved.

Middle Lake 

Covering 3 ½ acres with just thirty-seven swims. Middle lake was designed for bagging up on various methods and styles from pole to feeder or waggler. Carp and Tench with back ups including Bream, Roach, Perch and Crucians being the target fish. Carp match weights of 100 lbs have also been taken from every peg on middle with 152-14oz lb being the best from peg 77. The largest recorded carp from middle being 17 lb 10oz.

Syndicate Lake

Similar in size to Gold lake (6 acres) average depths of 5ft, again with shallow areas in the middle. Syndicate holds a very large head of fish with Carp again being the dominant species. The roach fishing on Syndicate has developed well with 83 to 90 and 116 to 124 being the recognised areas; Syndicate also holds a large head of Crucians, Tench, Bream and Perch with many approaching the specimen bracket.

Bat Lake

Bat lake is one of the most popular small lakes in the Hampshire / Surrey area with just eighteen swims and just under one acre, depths vary from 12” to 4 ft plus. Bat Lake holds Tench, Carp, Roach, Perch, Bream, Crucians and Rudd. The Carp go to around the 9 lb mark and on the odd occasion that competitions have been held on Bat lake weights have run up to just short of 120 lb. Pole with float being the best method, with meat and hemp or maggots being the baits to use.

Bungalow Lake

A one-acre lake contains twenty-three swims with depths to 6 ft. Some small islands, old willows, rushes and pipe reeds add to the day to make Bungalow Lake a must for either the experienced angler or the beginner.The heaviest five-hour match weight from bungalow being 126 lb taken in the month of December.
