WATER LEVELS: Due to serious drought in the region we have already closed the doughnut and Jacobs creek along with pegs 22 to 28 on the Big Lake, for fish and angler safety. The Traditional Lake has now re-opened due to raised water levels but still please fish with care.  Match lake 1 is open for day anglers but pegs 16 to 19 are closed for NIGHT FISHING, all other night fishing pegs are still available for bookings.  There are now 12 fishable swims on the Canal.

Anglers are advised to call before travelling long distances for updates on levels. Anglers must also ensure they pack their waders as they may have to walk into the water to catch and release fish. 

Thank you for your continued support - SWP Team

Thank you...

Suffolk Water Park is lucky to have many loyal anglers who volunteer to help out with working parties around the lakes and the complex, without whom, we wouldn't be able to achieve the standard we have.  

They come along and help at Fishing Clubs, Open Days and Matches, which not only encourages more people into fishing but also raises funds for local charities, so all of us at the park would like to thank the "Friends of Suffolk Water Park" for the contribution of their time for us over the years!

Becky Sharman




Becky has been around the fishing scene since she was a young child when her Dad used to take her out on his sea fishing boat.  After catching her first freshwater fish (a Jack Pike) at the age of 12 on a telescopic rod Becky dabbled in fishing until 9 yrs ago when she found her true passion for Carp fishing.

Becky said, "I'm a rare female with the same passion for fishing as the next man, my aim is to encourage and promote female anglers into this wonderful sport."

Becky currently fishes for Carp Team England Ladies and loves competing in various competitions in the UK and abroad.

In 2019 Becky managed to secure a win in the Forces Cup Classics and will be competing in the World Carp Classics in 2020 alongside International duties for England!

You can meet Becky in the Shop on Tuesdays and Wednesday Mornings, where she's available with Carp and lake advice and has been known to join anglers on the bank to help catch a Carp or two!
