Snake Pit Colchester Angling Preservation Society Limited is a carp lake based in Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom. It has a stock of around carp and is 10 Acres in size. The biggest carp is over 40lb+

Snake Pit can be found on the Fingringhoe Road on the outskirts of Colchester, at over 12 acres in size it has a reputation for big fish and is therefore aimed more at the specimen hunter than the general angler. The lake has a long history of producing seriously large Carp and this looks set to continue in the future. The largest resident is current a fish called Stomper Lin which has broken the 40lb barrier in recent years. Catfish in excess of 50lb, Tench averaging upper 7lb and large Pike are found in numbers. Reward is the name of the game here where perseverance is key, time and effort = reward. Snags and weed beds can cause be challenging and it is advised that the angler search their swim very carefully to seek out any obstructions.
In the Winter of 2016, twenty four Carp from VS Fisheries were stocked into the lake. These fish were between 11lb & 16lb and are a mixture of linears, leathers, heavily plated mirrors etc. Many of these fish are now in excess of 20lb and in March 2020 one of these stocked fish broke the 30lb barrier. In Nov 2019 a further stocking of VS Fisheries Carp was made with 25  fish ranging from 10lb to 25lb.
