Bentley Fishery


Mores Ln, Brentwood CM14 5RU, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Located in Essex, this particular fishery boasts a lake that’s around 40 years old. With a surface of 3.5 acres, the lake shelters species that are common to specimen fishing, such as Perch, Carp, as well as Mirror Carp.

Even though it comes with a total of 8 swims, there are times when only 5 or 6 anglers may be allowed on the lake at the same time. In case one wishes to fish during the night, the fishery allows that, most likely based on a permit/ticket.

When it comes to rules and things to pay attention to, keep in mind to bring only microbarbed or barbless hooks on site and don’t engage in spodding. Trout pellets, nut baits, as well as leadcore are not allowed. In short, anglers must be very careful when interacting with the surrounding environment, as to not disturb it too much.

Last but not least, the surrounding areas are reportedly very quiet, while the lake and the purpose built swims are spacious enough to fit sizeable fishing equipment and whatnot, including bivies.

What size do the fish go to?

Carp weight as much as 29lbs.

Perch, Roach, and Tech of common size can also be caught.

What tactics work well?

Due to certain restrictions, a bait boat is recommended.

Other than that, common carp and Stillwater bait will do the trick: earthworms, boilies, bread, and corn.

What facilities are on site?

On-site toilets.

Is parking available?

Two small parking lots available near the lake.

Roadside parking might also be possible.
