Bradleys Lake
Day and season permits available

This mature gravel pit is already well known by the serious specimen hunter for its large carp currently growing over the magical 40lb mark Bradley's has been stocked with 2000 carp in 2006 to compliment the existing head of 250 carp which grow in exess of 40lbs. These fish like lots of bait!

Bradleys is well known for its Tench to double figures, Roach, Perch and Rudd. During the winter months the pike angler can expect good sport with large catches commonplace.

Day tickets are available from 'The Tackle Den'. There are several car parks on Bradley's, details will be provided at the tackle shop when you purchase your ticket.

Bradley's is the Jewel in the Crown of Watermark fisheries. This 114 acre mature gravel pit is already well know by the serious specimen hunter for its large carp currently growing beyond the magical 40lb mark as well as specimen Tench into double figures Roach and Perch.

Although a huge venue Bradley's is unusual as far as large English gravel pits go in that it is a consistently prolific fishery for the carp angler and general angler alike. The carp population is in excess of 2500 fish with approximately 40 - 50 of these being very old original fish (this is a rough estimate).

Bradley's is a clearwater fishery with plenty of gravel patches. It is rich in life and now that gravel abstraction has finished is set to become one of the UK's premier carp fisheries.

In terms of other species Bradley's is well known for its Tench with 100lb + bags still commonplace. Tench are caught into double figures with a good average size of 4lbs + to be expected. Roach & Perch can also be caught and during the winter months the pike angler can expect good sport with large catches commonplace. Pike fishing is relatively unexploited however now that new bank space has been created there are many new areas to explore. Pike tend to hug the drop off. Action can be expected throughout the day however the first hour of dusk can be particularly rewarding.
