Wildings Lakes

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

Wildings Lakes is a stillwater fishery belongs to Hassocks & District Angling Society Ltd. This fishery comprises of two lakes, the larger of the two being the primary club venue for specimen hunters after large carp, tench and bream.
Both waters contain a good head of roach, rudd, perch, eels, chub, crucian hybrids and gudgeon. Most tactics will work on both lakes. Ledgered boilies and pellet seem to be one of the most prolific 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 will always produce bites but meat and corn will generally produce better quality fish. Dark groundbaits seem to be favoured particularly the fishmeal varieties.
The large lake is elongated, varying between about 20 and 35 metres wide with depths to around 8-10 feet. It is tree lined, with bushes and grasses lining the banks and reeds predominantly at the causeway end. Many of the swims have had lilies planted to provide additional features. The smaller lake holds a similar range of species and bank side vegetation and is an ideal water for a pleasure outing. Areas around the overhanging trees and weed beds hold resident tench and carp and in matches will sometimes out-fish the larger lake.
Car parking is right next to the lake in dry conditions. Night fishing is strictly by previous appointment only. The numbers of anglers fishing at night are under strict control and as with all the other society waters your stay on any fishery is limited to 36 hours maximum.

Tench to 4lb
