Welcome to

Bowsaw & Billhook Lakes

Bowsaw and Billhook lakes are located in the lovely countryside near to the historic village of Odiham in Hampshire. The lakes are within ten minutes of the M3 motorway and 15 minutes from Farnham.

These two lakes are host to many angling clubs for matches with good nets every week.

We are a friendly team and do our best to make the day as enjoyable as possible. On Sunday match days we can even provide home-made breakfasts. For more information about what we have to offer the pleasure and match angler, see below.

Bowsaw Lake

Bowsaw Lake is our larger 1.7 acre lake and is home to carp, tench and chub. The biggest mirror carp we’ve had caught on this lake was 36lb with numerous double figure mirror and common carp showing most of the year. The largest tench caught on this lake was 7lb 8oz. We’ve just completed a restocking programme of mirror and common carp weighing between 15lb and 25lb in this lake which should boost the chances of a big catch even more! The match weight record for this lake is 301lb.

We’d love to hear your reports and see pictures of your catches. Please contact us with your news and views to add to these pages!

Billhook Lake

Billhook Lake is our smaller 1.4 acre lake and is home to carp, tench, bream, roach, perch, barbel, chub, ide and F1’s averaging 1- 4lb. In addition to Bowsaw Lake there are also some very large carp in this lake with weights between 4lb-23lb. This lake makes for a fantastic match lake but also is also brilliant for a day of pleasure fishing. The match weight record for this lake is 284lb for a 5 hour match.
