Monk Lakes

Monk Lakes

Marden, Kent

Monk Lakes is a very large fishery and offers around 45 acres of water to go at. Set in 120 acres of Kent countryside, you should have a relaxing day in these peaceful surroundings. The fishing choices include:

2,000m of river bank along the River Beult - this is a great natural venue which will reward the skilled angler. In winter this offers great pike sport.

Match Lake 1 - a 44 peg mixed species lake which offers convenient fishing and the chance for a big weight

Match Lake 2 - known by many as "The Barbel Lake" this is a 46 peg lake which is packed with fish

Match Lake 3 - a 3 acre, 45 peg lake which has some big lumps lurking in the depths - use strong tackle!

Match Lake 4 - a smaller 29 peg lake which is well stocked with Carp, Barbel, Bream and Tench

Bridges Lake - a natural lake around 16 acres in size. It contains a large head of carp and features some great reed and lilly beds

Puma Lake - a 10 acre lake featuring a number of island features to fish to. Great sport is on offer here with lots of carp waiting in the water

Mallard Lake - you need to pre-book pegs on here, with only 10 pegs available there is a lot of demand for a peg on here. This is the specimen lake with carp that run up to 45lb

The venue offers a very wide choice of pegs for any disabled anglers - lottery funding recently helped add 80 new pegs.

Onsite facilities include:

  • Cafe with a seating area - open on weekends in winter but each day in the summer
  • Men's, Women's and disabled toiliets
  • Bait shop - which also sells a small range of tackle
  • Ample car parking with short walks to most pegs
