Fishing at Sumners Ponds We are a day ticket fishery offering 8 acres of well stocked water in three ponds and are open all year. There are lakeside camping pitches available for the exclusive use of those wishing to fish. All lakeside pitches have views over the water and 4 premium pitches are available with exclusive swims. The small pond is one of the most prolific in the area and is ideal for well behaved youngsters, as there are always opportunities to catch, whatever the weather! There is plenty to interest the serious angler here too with Carp to 24lbs and an abundance of Roach, Rudd, Perch, Chubb and Tench. The bigger pond has the bigger fish with a large number of doubles and twenties, the current record being a 28.5lb common. There are some fine Chubb to be had here at 7lb, Bream at 6lbs, Tench to 9lbs, and 3lb Perch. Roach to 2lb can be found in both lakes. Our new 3.5 acre landscaped lake provides prolific fishing with barbel, chub, crucians and with tench and carp to 4lbs, bream to 4lbs and roah to 1.5lbs. The lake is primarily designed for the match fisherman but provides great sport for the day ticket fisherman also. Please check availability with the bailiff. The ponds are open from 7am to dusk. Please take care to read the simple rules before you start. You will need an adequate landing net for the bigger fish (you may share one if you fish from the same swim. Maximum 3 people.) You will also need an unhooking mat and barbless hooks are essential. We have no bait restrictions except we do ask you to limit ground bait to 1 kilos.
