Fishery Information

Experience the ultimate day of fishing at Mill Barn, renowned as the best fishing spot in Essex. Following an extensive renovation and restocking in 2018, this historic lake offers an exceptional fishing experience, particularly for those seeking abundant small fish. The recent enhancements include the excavation of the back or road back, reaching an impressive depth of 7ft, and the expansion of the lake by removing a section of the island. Notably, the island now features only one remaining peg, the classic peg 6, while some of the older, tighter pegs have been removed for a more spacious layout.

With newly installed platforms, anglers can enjoy a comfortable and productive day on the water. The lake boasts a diverse range of silver fish, including skimmers, tench, crucians, F1s, as well as the resident roach and rudd. This makes Mill Barn an excellent destination for families, ensuring non-stop action with constant bites. Already, match weights exceeding 80lb have been achieved, and with the fish growing in size and becoming more voracious in their feeding habits, expect these weights to soar even higher.
