Lakeland Fishery


Wickham Bishop Rd, Chelmsford CM3 2JL, United Kingdom

Lakeland Fishery Information

The Lakeland fishery consists of three large lakes – all of them are designed for match fishing. Two of them, Wood and Lily, are open to all types of anglers and feature 21 pegs that are also decked. The third lake, Swan, has a surface of roughly 5.5 acres and is reserved for the members of the fishing syndicate. It has a total of 36 pegs.

In terms of surroundings, the three lakes are located in 15 acres of countryside, with no sources of noise or disturbances nearby, so to speak. As such, the stock of the lake is often relaxed and ready to be caught. Speaking of stock, anglers can catch here Carp, Bream, Tench, Rudd, Roach, as well as Perch, Ide, Chub, and Barbel.

Overall, Lakeland fishery is perfect for groups of anglers or for those that like meeting new fishing buddies. The 15 acres area that the lakes stretch across is more than enough to accommodate a decent number of anglers without making things feel crowded.
