Rookley Country Park

Main Road, Rookley, PO38 3LU, Isle of Wight, United Kingdom

Rookley Country Park, located in the centre of the Isle of Wight, provides on-site accommodation and convenient access to the island's many attractions.

There are well-stocked fishing lakes and a bait and equipment shop for expert fisherman, as well as personal instruction for passionate newcomers.

The Small Lake is a lovely and intriguing lake with abundance of greenery around the borders. It occupies less than three-quarters of an acre. It is home to a variety of species including Roach, Rudd, Perch, Tench, Golden Tench, Mirror Carp, Common Carp, and huge Crucian Carp up to 3lb 12oz. Carp are progressively rising in size, with many weighing between 8 and 15 pounds and some exceeding 20 pounds. In the summer, the best approaches include floater fishing (but please keep a watch on the wildfowl), and method feeders with pellet or boilie hookbaits.

Roach and Perch may be caught one every throw by float fishing with a single maggot or worm on the drop. Ideal for children and novices.

The enormous lake is approximately 2 acres in size and is mostly stocked with Carp. Carp number over 130 double figure fish, including over 100 fish at 20lb or more and 20 fish weighing over 30lb, all of which are growing at a rapid rate. The majority of the fish are Mirrors and are from the fast developing Fishers Pond breed. At the moment, the lake record stands at over 40lb. The lake's common record is 26lb+. Boilies are used to catch the bulk of fish. The best bait is frozen and is available on-site at the fisheries shop, as are pellets, prepared particles, and a variety of carp tackle.
