There are 150 plus permanent pegs and members will tell you each peg has
a shoal of Chub. It's just that some shoals are larger than others. Chub are the
predominant specie, and Roach and Dace are making a come back, a Christmas match
being won with 25lbs of Roach from a stretch where they rarely show. Get the water
colour right and they appear from nowhere. More anglers are targeting the Carp, Pike
and Barbel, all of which run to double figures. The river also has a large head of
perch to 4lbs (average 1.8lbs), that seem to show surprisingly more in the summer,
when the Minnows are active. Trout, Gudgeon, Crucians and Tench will put in an appearance.
Each section also holds a resident shoal of Bream. The river is one of the best kept
secrets amongst Surrey anglers.
This rectangular lake with an average depth of 3 feet can accommodate 26 anglers
on 2 metre square platforms. No fishing between platforms. It is naturally spring
fed and water levels are also kept up when the River Mole has it's winter floods.
The species present include Carp, Crucians, Roach, Gudgeon, Skimmers, Tench and Perch.
The latter three were introduced in 2005.
Large uncaught Roach can be targeted, as well as the traditional
stillwater species of Perch, Tench and Carp . The Carp grow to 10lbs. The water responds
well to a roving approach and is under fished by the membership. An ideal water for
those who prefer their own company.
NOTE; Due to lack of volunteers it has not been
possible to do any maintenance for some time. Therefore weedy and swims overgrown.
