Opened in the Spring of 2006 Coking Farm offers quality coarse fishing in 11 acres of water over three lakes set in the heart of the Blackmore Vale. On site you will also find a well stocked bait shop, toilets and showers and a small area for touring caravans.

Coking Farm offers anglers both enjoyable leisure and challenging fishing for a variety of fish including: Specimen Common and Mirror Carp, Green Tench and Roach, and Golden Tench, Golden Rudd, Crucians, Bream and Catfish.

Woodland Lake:
Tucked into the bottom corner of Fifehead Woods this three and a half acre specimen lake is stocked with a good head of Carp ranging from 10lbs to upper 20lbs which have been settling in and growing since stocking in Winter 2003/4. The biggest out so far is 28 lbs 10 ozs, though many of the larger fish are still uncaught. Earlier this year Woodland Lake became home to Catfish up to late 20 lbs.

Meadow Lake:
At four and a half acres, Meadow Lake has quite a different aspect and its two islands promise to become a very attractive feature as the newly planted shrubs begin to mature. Stocked with a large head of Carp ranging from 5 lbs to lower 20 lbs, it is possible to catch huge bags when conditions are right.

Rush Lake:
At three acres, and the smallest of the three lakes, Rush Lake is particularly noted for its good head of quality Tench. It is also heavily stocked with Carp, Bream, Roach, Rudd and Crucians and offers excellent leisure and match fishing, with pleasure bags of 150 lbs not uncommon.

Reader Feedback:
After looking at your website, I spent a weekend in Dorset at Coking Farm Fishery last Month and wanted to leave a review for the venue.

I spent the weekend at Coking farm and had a great time, the fishing on Woodland lake was very enjoyable. I caught my personal best carp plus lots of other specimen carp and also caught my first catfish which was great. The quality of fish there is excellent and the other fishermen are very friendly. The owner was very welcoming and helpful as well.

I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a new fishery to visit.
