in secluded, wooded parkland, Wallington Hall offers old-fashioned
estate lake fishing at its best. There are four, stream-fed lakes,
each with its own different character. Wallington Hall is situated just off the A10 between Stow Bardolph and South Runcton.
1 covers approximately 3.3 acres. This lake has been drained, dredged,
refilled and restocked in time for the 2013 season. It now has depths
to 6 feet plus.
2 covers approximately 3.5 acres and is the primary match lake at
Wallington Hall. It has been stocked in recent years with >20,000 silverfish, 1,200 small carp and tench.
3 covers approximately 4.4 acres and is the specimen lake, containing
carp up to 20lb plus, together with tench, bream, rudd, roach, crucian
carp, perch and pike.
4 is a new additon in 2013 and covers approximately 1.2 acres. It is
being left deliberately "wild". It has not been fished consistently for
over 20 years, and is known to hold good sized carp and roach, at the
is via the estate road (follow
signs) and car parking is provided close to each lake. Access is not
permitted before 5.30am and all anglers must leave at dusk (9.45pm latest;
gates will be locked and there will be a release fee to get out after
this time). Members are not permitted
to visit Wallington Hall during the Close Season, other than for Work
Party duties arranged by the Committee. Other visits can ONLY be made by prior arrangement with the Secretary. Pre-baiting visits can commence on June 13th, 2013.
Claypit is, as its name suggests, a deep clay-lined pool, approx 1.4
acres in size, situated on the edge of Denver village (on Ryston
Road). This lake is well-stocked with prime coarse species,
including carp to >15lbs, and is the mainstay of our match fishing.
There are more than 20 pegs, each in the form of a wooden and concrete platform. Car
parking is provided with easy access to most of the pegs although some
are at the bottom of a steep incline and care is required in reaching them.
Drain is a Y-shaped drain in the Fens to the west of Downham Market,
near Stowbridge. All the usual Fen drain species can be found; and it
is renowned for the size and quality of pike to be caught there.
Please note: The Willows is no longer a DM&DAA water. It can be fished via Kings Lynn Angling.
River Waters (Great Ouse and Wissey)
kind permission of the London Angling Association, we have secured the
rights to fish two excellent stretches of river. These are the Great
Ouse from Littleport upstream, including the famous Ten Mile Bank
fishery, and a stretch on the south bank of the Wissey, upstream of the
Sugar Beet Factory at Wissington. Details of these waters, and access
to them, are in your club book, and also can be found on the LAA
Great OusePlease note: DM&DAA club rules apply to our members fishing these waters.
