The latest addition to Johnson's fishery...

Hollywood Bowl has similar dimensions to Hollywood Strip being approximately 450 metres long, 30 metres wide, with a depth of around 10 feet and parking facilities available behind every peg.

The Lake is still under construction and the final phase will see the addition of another 14-16 pegs at some point in the not too distant future. When the construction work has finished, the lake will loop round an elongated island, which will separate the pegs which are situated on the outer bank.

Carp are currently the main target species and average 1lb-6lb in size, together with a good number of fish around 10lb. There is also a really good stock of F1’s, Skimmers, Ide and Crucians which are capable of producing winning match weights for those anglers targeting these species.

Similar to Hollywood Strip, Hollywood Bowl also lends itself to a variety of tactics including the pellet waggler, method feeder or bomb to the far bank with long and short pole, both shallow and on the deck also being equally effective.

If carp are the target species, the fishery 8mm and 11mm pellets are without doubt the standout bait, although meat, corn and paste can also be deadly in the correct conditions. When the weather is cooler, the deeper water down the middle can is the main area to target.

The silverfish tend to respond well to the fishery 4mm and 6mm expanders fished over a bed of 2mm micro pellets. Maggots, casters, worms, corn, meat and paste can also be effective for the silverfish this lake has to offer.
