Fishery Information

Snipe Lake at Rectory Farm and Campsite is a picturesque fishing lake, spanning approximately 2.5 acres and offering around 20 swims for anglers to choose from. The lake features a variety of fishing spots, including a long thin island that creates a small bay in the top corner, which is known as a productive area.

The margins of the lake are characterized by soft weed and some lilies, providing additional features for anglers to target. As you venture further into the water, the depth ranges from 10 to 18 feet, offering diverse fishing opportunities.

Snipe Lake boasts a good variety of fish species to cater to different angling preferences. For those who enjoy catching smaller fish and keeping active, there are plenty of small perch, roach, and rudd in the lake. Using hemp and casters as bait can help attract better-sized roach.

One of the highlights of Snipe Lake is its population of tench, which can be found in good numbers. Spring and early summer are particularly rewarding times to target tench, as they can lead to sizeable catches for lucky anglers who locate their feeding spots.

In addition to perch, roach, rudd, and tench, Snipe Lake is home to big bream, crucians, eels, and perch weighing up to 3lb 12oz. These larger specimens add excitement and the potential for memorable catches during your fishing sessions.

Whether you prefer float fishing, feeder fishing, or other angling techniques, Snipe Lake at Rectory Farm and Campsite provides a serene and rewarding fishing experience for both novice and experienced anglers alike
