More House Farm,
RH17 7RE RH17 7RE
More House Farm is a rapidly expanding fishery set in the beautiful Mid Sussex countryside. It currently boasts two lakes, with a third nearing completion. They are all in set in very tranquil surroundings, bordered almost entirely by open country side.
Kingfisher Lake was built in 1996 as water storage for the former dairy herd and cattle troughs for drinking water. The EA stocked the lakes in 1997 with Carp, Tench, Perch, Roach, Bream and Rudd. Fishing started on the lake in 1998 as a day ticket water.
The lake was cleaned out in 2006; the fish were removed and the carp were returned after the work was completed. By this time the Carp had grown considerably with 37lb 8oz now being the biggest. We created 17 swims which are made out of sleepers and chipped bark and are all in good condition.
At the end of the lake where peg 1 is situated, the lake is 2-4 ft deep and around the island the depth goes down to 8 ft. Pegs 16-17 are on the side of the lake and are backed by a open countryside. Opposite pegs 1-7 there are no swims therefore anglers can cast across the lake and fish just off the rushes. The lake is surrounded by green fields, large oak trees and an abundance of wildlife. Kingfisher Lake is in all a very peaceful setting, surrounded by natural beauty.
Please note that we do not allow children under 16 to fish on Kingfisher lake.
Canal was built in 2007, is 15 metres wide and built with the pole angler in mind. It has 20 purpose built swims made from sleepers 8ft x 5ft. For ease, there is a built in pole roller for every peg.
The swims have an inside line and a far bank with a deeper area down the centre. The swims have rushes and lilies on the far bank and down the inside. The lake was stocked with the match angler in mind with various Carp and Tench to 1½ lbs with a few larger fish. The fish have been growing well.
Canal has Carp: - Common, Mirror and Ghosties and well as Skimmers, Bream and Tench. A nice mixed fishery ideal for club booking and open matches.
The lake is between 4ft 6 - to 6ft deep.
Sidewinder has been built by cleaning out two ponds and joining them together with a causeway and an island. We have used as much of the existing ponds as possible within the lake. Sidewinder has 50 purpose built swims fishing to the far bank between 8- 16 metres which have varying depths between 5- 6ft. There is a path around the lake with grass and plants between the swims and the swims are made from sleepers so as to keeping anglers clean and dry.
Fish in the lake are Silvers, Rudd, Roach, Bream, Tench and also Carp, Barbel and a few Chub. For summer and winter sport alike.
