Details:
There are a number of ponds on Wimbledon Common and sadly NONE of them are opening to fishing.

Most of the ponds on the common are very shallow and can dry up completely during a dry summer so they contain no fish in them.
The largest pond on the common is Kingsmere pond (situated near the A3) does contain fish, but it is very silted and shallow so the size and number of fish in here is relatively low.

The deepest lake on the Common is Queensmere and this pond does contain fish. Carp can be seen on the surface and there are tales of decent pike being taken here many years back. This would suggest there is a suitable stock of silver fish.

Currently there are no plans to allow fishing on Wimbledon Common lakes or to improve the lakes for holding fish.

For more information on the ponds please see the link at the bottom of this article

Putney Heath

Hi Steve1 The lakes that you are mentioning on Putney Heath do not allow fishing either, this is a real shame as the one nearest to the A3 looks like it could be a decent pond. There are signs in the water in this pond declaring "No Fishing"

putney heath

I've heard that some of the ponds on the adjoining Putney Heath have fish in them, can you fish them?
