Wishing Tree Reservoir

Crowhurst Rd, Hastings, Hastings, TN38 9, East Sussex, United Kingdom

This 4-acre lake is well-known for its many carp and other species captures. The bulk of the carp captured in the summer are commons, with a minor number of mirrors. Bags of twenty fish are often caught at this time, with thirty and even forty fish being feasible. Weights are typically high singles or low doubles, however some carp may reach more than 20 pounds.

The water has excellent access since it is located right next to the road and is quite productive, making it a perfect place to spend a few hours with a decent possibility of catching a few fish.

During the warmer months, surface fishing is quite successful.

All techniques are successful. The water also has a healthy head of roach and rudd, both of which may grow to 1 1/2 lbs. From a few feet where the water enters to five feet at the end of the dam, the depth varies. Members and day ticket holders are allowed to fish at night, and a bailiff often attends and is happy to provide guidance.
