Sandiway Lakes is Members-only water. This is the club’s premier specimen fish water. At 53 acres, many anglers will find the size of the lake daunting, but the rewards can be great if time is invested in finding features. The bottom of the lake is mostly sandy, and has been described as ‘like an eggbox’ with depths ranging from 6 – 30 feet. In summer, the clear water means that weed growth is prolific in some areas. There are around 30 pegs, all suitable for overnight fishing. Anglers can stay up to 3 nights, and may use up to 3 rods.
The lake is home to specimen carp, tench and bream, with pike and roach also present. As far as carp are concerned, the original stock is largely unknown, but not thought to be very many fish. The club has a careful stocking program in place to provide selected fish that have good growth potential. To date, 60 carp have been stocked up to 29.5lbs. The average size of stocked fish was around 17lbs, although most of these fish are now mid-20s after just a few years.
