Kingfisher Lake

Kingfisher Lake is set in East Sussex as opposed to Mallard Lake which is in West Sussex, the county line literally cuts through the fishery complex.

Kingfisher Lake proudly houses our biggest known carp residents.  “The Pretty One” that has recently been banked at 52lbs 10oz,  “The Upfront” caught at 49lb 20z, “The Big Mirror at 44lb 2oz, “Ethers” 39lb 13oz, and “Drop Tail” at 35lb 20z. It is a stunning carp pool with no catfish and is dedicated to the carp angler. Please be aware that you need a minimum of 5 years experience to fish this lake. (No juniors allowed)

Features abound the pool, there are so many that include lily pads, islands, bars, gulley’s and overhanging willows to name a few. With only 6 swims available at any one time, the etiquette is 4 on the big side and 2 on the small side. Please ask a bailiff for advice if unsure.

Common carp which are pristine and scale perfect vary in weight from mid-20’s through to a very high density of mid to upper 30’s including several over the magical 40lb mark including 2 commons going over the 50lb mark.

There are mirror carp to compliment the commons. Tench can be caught to low double figures on a variety of methods including the waggler, providing you with some of Sussex’s best tench fishing.
