WATER LEVELS: Jacobs Creek, Match Lake 1 & 2 and the Traditional Lake have now re-opened due to raised water levels but still please fish with care.  There are also now 12 fishable swims on the Canal.

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 485lb Carp Haul!!!

next generation match

The Next Generation Match sponsored by NASH on Saturday 10th - 11th August, was great fun and a total of 43 Carp weighing just under 485lb were caught for prizes!!!

10 Adult & Junior pairs received a NASH goodie bag at the start of the match and fished the Traditional Lake for 24 hours despite the high winds!

The pairs outside the shop after the Draw.

The NASH team took some time with each pair whilst they fished, giving them tips and advice on their techniques, tackle and bait.  Every pair caught Carp and enjoyed a breakfast bap courtesy of the Suffolk Water Park delivered to them on Sunday morning.

 Junior match
Jake Hughes and his Dad Dave had 5 Carp between them.
