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

Match Lake 2

This 31 peg lake is 3 acres and holds small Carp and a big head of skimmers.  Its popular with anglers fishing for Roach and Rudd with some bonus Perch & Tench to be had!

The platforms are square, wide and sturdy, which always prove popular for holding the fishing club, as families can double up on the platforms.

You can park behind your swim, just off the road.

Number of pegs: 31

Water Depth: Average 5 ft

Fish Species:

  • Small Carp
  • Skimmers, Roach, Rudd
  • Bonus Perch & Tench

Fishing Tips:

The lake bed is convex in shape, therefore the corners are slightly deeper.  They tend to produce better during overcast days for all types of fishing.
