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

Next Generation 24 Hour Carp Match

Suffolk Water Park held a Junior/ Adult Pairs Competition on Tuesday 8th August over 24 hours on the Traditional Lake, which was a great success with lots of Carp caught throughout!

Stuart said, “Suffolk Water Park wants to encourage the Next Generation into fishing and what better way to lead the way is there, to be guided through by mentors and those who already have experience in angling?  The event was designed to be fun and informative.  I think we’ve achieved that, as everyone has enjoyed themselves and have expressed that they would love to take part in another event such as this one! So watch this space!”

Mike Hall from NASH came along to represent the Tackle Company and yet again came along with some amazing goodie bags with loads of Terminal Tackle for each participant!  Mike was also on hand to help and advise anglers, giving them tips and advice. In addition to this, as part of the ticket, Stuart brought everyone Bacon Baps from the Waterfront Café to their Bivvies!

There were some great weights including the biggest overall weight from Paul and his son Mickey Ayling (10 yrs old) who won the Prize for landing 6 Carp to 56lb 4oz during the 24 hours! They won a bag of NASH goodies plus a 24 hour fishing Voucher for two people.
