There is a specimen carp lake of 3.5 cares with common, mirror, ghost and grass carp to just about 40lbs. There are are also pike to 30lbs lurking in the depths. The lake has 18 purpose built pegs all big enough to take a bivvie. Permits are for 24 hours and need to be booked in advance as only 14 are available at any one time.

There is also a tench and silvers lake and Decoy Lake for chub, perch, roach and rudd.

I have seen indications that the fishery is wheelchair accessible and there is certainly vehicle access to some pegs. You should contact them to confirm but I recon it is worth a listing here.

Game Fishing

Hastings Fly Fishers Club Ltd

Hasting Fly Fishers have held the lease on Powdermill Reservoir near Battle since it's completion in 1932. The lake is 56 acres and up to 35 feet deep next to the Valve Tower with 3 "arms" to explore.

The reservoir is surrounded in woodland with the exception of the dam end which limits bank fishing to areas specially cleared for ease of casting. The dam wall is the best spot.

There are 14 boats including a wheelieboat supplied with an electric outboard motor. You can bring your own electric outboard is you wish.

There is a good Mayfly hatch which bring the fish to the top in May / June.

Stocked with rainbows from 1.5 to 8lbs the club also pop is some doubles to spice up the mix. The best fish was a 17.5lb fish caught on a Mayfly, bet that was fun. Stocking is carried out weekly with high quality fish aiming to maintain a stock level of 2,000 fish at any one time.

There is an aeration system on the resevoir at the dam end which helps to keep the fish healthy in warm weather. Quite a surprise for such a big bit of water.

There are wild brown trout flourishing in the reservoir with the best being a 10 pounder.

There is a lodge where you can heat a meal in the microwave or brew a cuppa. There are toilets including facilities for disabled anglers.
