Apply now for a year of fishing at sites across Andover

Test Valley Borough Council has opened applications to apply for a season ticket to fish at sites across Andover this year.

Running from 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025, a season ticket covers you to fish at three Council-run sites at Foxcotte Lake, Rooksbury Mill Local Nature Reserve and Anton Lakes Local Nature Reserve.

Each site offers a peaceful setting and multiple fishing platforms, or ‘swims’, many of which are Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant. Species of fish which can be caught at these sites include: tench, common carp, roach, rudd, perch, bream and pike.

Season tickets can be purchased for £53.65 for adults and £26.83 for under 18s and over 60s. Information on how to do this can be found on our website. Day tickets can also be purchased directly from a number of local tackle shops but are not available on the bank.

If you’re aged over 13, you’ll also need an Environment Agency Fishing Licence, available from
