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

Over 100 get hooked on Fishing at FAMILY FISHING DAY 2018

The Family Fishing Day held at the Water Park on Saturday 25th August, went swimmingly!  134 signed up for fishing tutorials and were allocated around 20 minutes FREE taster sessions with professional coaches and volunteers from around the County!

Lots of fish were caught and all the families were enthusiastic and eager to learn.  Suffolk Water Park gave Adult/junior day passes away to encourage families back into fishing!  Arthurs Burger Van were there to serve tasty grub and there were plenty of fishing inspired games to keep everyone occupied whilst they waited!

Bait-Tech added support to the event and offered anyone who signed up for the event the chance to be entered into a free prize draw to win a fishing tackle starter kit worth £60. The prize winner is to be announced shortly so watch this space!

Terry Rowles brought his Grandson Oliver to the event and he said:

  "We both had a great time, I must say I have not been to Suffolk Water Park before so did not know what to expect, I found [the park]: very clean and well laid out, all your staff there, James and Hayley were brilliant, so helpful and friendly, also please pass on my profound thanks again to Wayne who mentored Oliver, he was great with him and took the time to explain it all to him and allow him to bring fish in on his own ( seven bream to 3 pounds  and a nice common carp of about 5-6 pounds ) we will definitely be back to carry on Ollie's fishing career, again thanks to everyone for arranging a great day."

Becky Eaks commented, " We love holding these events at Suffolk Water Park!  Bait-Tech have always been great supporters of getting kids into fishing and they have great contacts with coaches and volunteers, as does the Angling Trust who fund the events along with us and Bait-Tech.  We're planning on holding a couple of FREE Family Fishing Events next year and are holding meetings in October to arrange dates, so keep a look out!"
