How many swims? 40.
How busy does Darenth get? Depends on how well the lake is fishing but you will always be able to get a swim. I’ve have time rules in place which stop full time anglers having the monopoly of the lake.
Is there any security? There is a 10 foot high compound for the cars, fences and gates right the way around the lake.
How much is a ticket? Prices vary on the time of year that you join – Full season which is starts in 1st weekend of May and ends last day of February a full ticket is £700 plus £30 Key Charge ( the annual fee can be paid in instalments.Payment can be made by direct debit to Barclays Bank (contact warren for details)
How hard is it to catch? The key elements are time, location and feeding patterns. If you get this combination right it is very easy water.
What is a good season on Darenth? Between 25-30 fish.
When the best time? Spring through to late October is the prime time; best months are August and September. Winter can produce well depending upon the weather and the amount out bait going out. Keep the fish feeding by putting regular bait out.
What is the best area? All swims will produce but you need to be prepared to fish under your rod tips in a quite corner or 12 inches of off a far margin at 120 yards.
What’s the best bait? Through the summer fishmeal work well A2 Baits – Mainline – Bevos – Nash and through the Winter I would always recommend A2baits.
How Much bait? Through the summer months I would use a kg per rod and through the winter 10 – 15 baits per rod – I will always top up when getting takes.
