Essex Leisure Fisheries


Chapel Lane, South Benfleet, SS7 2, Essex, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The Essex Leisure Fisheries can be found near South Benfleet and consist of a total of four lakes – two large and two small ones. Overall, all of the lakes are designed as mixed coarse fisheries.

Two of the lakes, the smaller ones, are known as The Piggeries and come with a stock comprised mainly of Bream, Carp, Tench, Roach, and True Crucian. One of the large lakes, on the other hand, comes with above-average Carp, excellent Perch, Bream, Tench, and roach. It also has a couple of Pike specimens that are upper doubles.
