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

suffolk water park nash event
Our annual NASH Social Event & Match on 13th - 14th May 2017 was great fun, with 31 keen anglers (pictured above) receiving amazing NASH Goodie Bags full of Terminal Tackle & a Beer & Burger voucher courtesy of us at SWP.  The anglers all fished for 24 hours and had time to mingle with guests & visitors and have a bite at Arthurs burger van with lots of Carp were caught during the evening.

The NASH reps were on hand giving informative Bait & Rig clinics.
