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

Second Next Generation Match of 2019 Success!

Next Generation MAtch

The second Next Generation Match of 2019, sponsored by NASH was held on Saturday 7th - 8th September.  All competitors had great fun and a total of 33 Carp weighing 413lb were caught for prizes!!!

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

Mike Hall from NASH presented the prizes and carried out the Draw for the NASH Raffle, raising £100 in funds towards the purchase of a defibrillator for the Park!!
