Created in 1997 and opened in 1998, the fishery is set in 28 acres of mature pastureland. Puddledock is only 2 minutes from the M25 and conveniently located between the towns of Upminster, Brentwood and South Ockendon. Puddledock is a particularly flat site making access for the elderly and disabled easy.
Designed as a purpose built,100 peg, competition lake the Snake is approximately 13 metres wide and 1.5 metres deep. The pegs are 13 metres apart on average with established reed and rushes on near and far banks.
Carp (20lb), Bream (4lb), Tench (4lb), Chub (3lb), Roach (2lb), Crucian and Brown Goldfish (2lb) and Rudd (12oz). Although designed as a competition lake, pleasure anglers enjoy the snake as there is usually a secluded, peaceful spot and with the carp a good average size there is usually something to put a bend in the rod.
Summer: Meat, Corn, Pellet, Catmeat and Paste Winter: Maggot, Pellet, Worm and Caster.
A 30 peg true mixed lake. The Road Lake is probably the most popular lake at Puddledock with its varied species and close proximity to both car parks. The Road Lake has one long island up the centre, 20 metres from the bank, depth is roughly 1.6metres, lending itself to waggler and feeder fishing, popular with pleasure anglers. All methods have proven track records with waggler and tip often winning club matches but long and short pole approach also very successful.
Summer: Meat, Corn, Pellet, Catmeat, Paste and worm.
Winter: Maggot, Pellet, Worm and Caster.
A 24 peg lake created to satisfy the carp bagging enthusiast, Island Lake is carp only but different to many carp puddles in as much that it is not a whole in the ground but set at the quiet end of the site with established hedgerow and stream / woodland on two sides. Carp from small to 18lb's up for grabs.
Set in a backdrop of an established wood, the Wood Lake is the specimen lake at Puddledock. Stocking is pretty much carp only with a good head of fish in the 12lb to 18lb range, with fish in the low 20's rising to 30lb. There are also lots of smaller homebred carp in the Wood Lake that can be good fun for the junior while dad seeks the specimen.
