Wildings Lakes


Cinder Hill, Lewes, BN8 4, East Sussex, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Controlled by the Hassocks & District Angling Society Ltd., Wildings Lakes is a stillwater fishery that comprises 2 lakes. The larger lake is the primary club venue for specimen hunters that are looking to catch large carp, bream and tench to 4 lbs.. Both waters are home to a good stock of rudd, roach, eel, perch, chub, gudgeon and crucian hybrids.

The larger lake has a width of up to 35 metres and depths between 8 and 10 feet. This water is tree-lined with bushes and grasses lining the banks and reeds predominantly at the causeway end. The smaller lake is ideal for pleasure fishing and outing. Areas around the overhanging trees and weed beds hold resident tench and carp.

Night fishing is possible for this fishery, but prior appointment is required.

What size do the fish go to?

Tench go up to 4 lbs. and eels to 5 lbs..

What tactics work well?

Most tactics will work on both lakes. Ledgered boilies and pellet seem to be one of the most effective ways to target the carp and tench. A large bunch of worms at night will tempt the eels which are present to about 5lbs. Maggot and caster always produces bites but meat and corn generally produce better quality fish. Dark groundbaits seem to be favoured particularly the fishmeal varieties.

What facilities are on site?

Car parking is right next to the lake in dry conditions.

Is parking available?
