LAKEDOWN TROUT FISHERY

A scenic fishery

Lakedown will be closed for a private function on Tues 20th Oct

 

Lakedown Trout Fishery is situated in a secluded Wealden valley with scenic views & no visible sign of habitation.

The Fishery was originally designed & created in 1981 by actor & Rock legend Roger Daltrey.

The four spring-fed lakes totalling approximately 20 acres have an abundance of aquatic fly life.   

"A visual assault on the senses. There can be no prettier fishery in this land. Spikes of bright yellow flag decorate the banks which are thick with beds of rose bay willow herb, bee-haunted fox gloves & spotted orchid. A place where wild browns & rainbows live side by side" -

Trout Fisherman, August 2005

CATCH REPORT

Latest Updates

OCTOBER

19th October - Weekly Report.

After a slowish start it end up another superb week angling at Lakedown. A number of 4.5lb+ fish were caught in both deeper and shallow water, with the catch of the week an impressive 8.8lb Rainbow from lake 2.  Buzzers have been performing particularly well helping the weeks catch rate reach 85%

.We will be closed  Tuesday 20th OCT for a private function. 

 

 

 

12th October - Weekly Report.

Despite a few days where the weather didn't play ball its been another great week of fishing at Lakedown.  Fish are active across all four lakes with lakes 1 and 4 fishing the best.  The overall catch rate ended up at 80% with some beautiful rainbows being caught including at 7.1lb from lake 1 on a red buzzer.  Daddies are still catching well as are buzzers and nomads. the water temp is now down to 12.5 degrees which the trout are absolutely loving! 

 

 

5th October - Weekly Report.

What a weeks fishing at Lakedown. With well over 100 fish caught and a catch rate of almost 90% it has been one of the best weeks of the year.  All lakes are fishing well and despite this weekends rain, all remain fishable (although lakes 1 & 2 are muddying up a touch.)  A number of 4lb+ rainbows have been caught from all lakes, mainly just sub surface.  An angler (who got his 4 fish bag) insightfully noted that through the day the newly stocked fish were active for lures, but early and late in the day the over summered fish were feeding in a more naturalised manner  (taking daddies and hares ears).  With the water now below 15 degrees and a healthy flow of water running through the lakes, the good fishing should continue.  

SEPTEMBER

29th September - Weekly Report.

With a steady drop in water temperature the good fishing has continued this week at Lakedown.  The blustery weather conditions have made things slightly more challenging but the catch rate ended up at a healthy 75%.  The cooler water has also meant we have been able to start putting the bigger fish back in which has been reflected through a couple of 5lb fish out of lake 4, a 6.8lb rainbow from lake 3 and the bag of the week weighing in 4 fish at 13lbs .  Daddies, hares ears and cats whiskers are all catching well and the trout and active in both shallow and deeper water.  We will be closed this Tuesday 29th sept for a charity function.
