Hinderclay Lakes is a popular fishery which has a great reputation, many anglers have enjoyed some great sessions sitting around these lakes. Located in Rickinghall, Suffolk, the venue is fairly easy to get to and draws anglers from a large area. The venue offers a choice of 6 lakes:
Reed Pool – a great piece of water with lots of lilly beds – beware of these in the winter though, when the underwater snags may not be visible. The carp in here run to the late teens, plus there are some slimy double figure tench.
Florence Lake – a 20 peg lake where the main target will be carp. Pellet wagger and the method work well, but make sure you gear up properly, the carp average at around 8lbs, so fishing too light could result in a fairly frustrating session.
Spring Lake – this is the specimen lake on the complex. Carp wise they run into the 30lbs region, with a very good head of twenties and late teens.
William Lake – the stock in here is primarily silverfish. When the temperatures drop and the carp stop feeding, this lake should provide great sport.
Arthur – the stocking on here is similar to the Florence. This is a cracking club match venue, which will offer fair and consistent conditions.
Willow Pool – this lake is particularly well suited to beginner anglers. There is a good head of silverfish along with a number of carp below the 2lbs mark. These should provide lots of bites!
