Stockley Road Lake (as it was known in the seventies) has always contained some nice fish. A deep set four acre Gravel pit , it fishes well all year round, due to the protection from the weather afforded by its steep banks. Containing an impressive stock of fish for a small water Stockley produced its first forty plus when sought after Mirror ‘Gertie’ was banked at 41lb 4oz in December 2006.
Several other fish attained record weights last season which has bumped up the thirties stockley contains as well as increasing those over twenty pound to forty five known fish to add to the fifty plus up and coming doubles.
The lake is split into two halves by an island, and several bays and snaggy area’s create some attractive- looking spots.
Once a noted tench water stockley has produced fish to over 12lb and roach, rudd and skimmers have benefited from a carp diet to reach some good weights and provide sport for those who fish for them.
Predator fishing is also worthwhile at this water, small spinners or deadbaits have produced big perch and pike in excess of 20lb.
Limited and difficult access makes stocklet unsuitable for disabled anglers.
Stockley is accessed through combination locked gates and the car park is situated next to the lake where you will also find the toilet facilities.
