Description

Important:
Whitevane pond is now a running as a day ticket water again, therefore syndicate tickets are no longer required.


A truly well established and picturesque venue dating back more than 200 years.

Located on the edge of St Leonard’s forest deep in the Sussex countryside, this fine fishery is renowned throughout the UK carp fraternity for its monstrous inhabitants, some of which run to well over 40lbs.

In addition to the huge carp Whitevane holds, there is also a good head of specimen sized Bream, Roach and of course Tench (some of which have been reported at over 12lb).

The lake itself varies in depth from around 5 feet in the margins, dropping off to around 15 feet in the middle, There are plenty of features to fish to with an abundance of Lillie pads, reed beds and the islands (all three of them).

Whitevane pond tactics have been the subject of much debate, but it seems that the majority of fish are caught on fresh boilies fished tight to the features, saying that pellet, corn, worms and even maggots do account for fish on a regular basis so any angler worth his salt should have at least one of those baits as back up.

Whitevane like most good southern specimen waters does get busy, particularly during the peak summer months, but with nearly forty pegs on the lake you can always find somewhere especially if you don't mind 'spooks corner', a much neglected corner of the lake where bobbins aren't the only thing to go bump in the night.

The 'white lady' reportedly walks her dog after dark around that corner of the lake, which is enough to keep some of the easier spooked anglers at the other end.
