Buckshole Reservoir

Buckshole Reservoir is a large, deep 3.5 acre water located in Hastings in the relaxing Alexandra Park. The water and surroundings support a lot of wildlife including a large variety of ducks and a few swans. Buckshole Reservoir supports a sizeable number of coarse fish for the match fisherman, some very large carp for the carp enthusiast and some very good sized pike. The water is considered a hard fish for the carp angler but the rewards are worthwhile with carp reaching 36lb. The reservoir is controlled by Hastings, Bexhill and District Freshwater Angling Association who also offer the water as a day ticket venue. Day tickets can be obtained on the bank.

Buckshole Fishing Lake

Buckshole is a large 8 acre water with depths of 20-30ft in the middle. The reservoir is oval shaped with trees, over hanging bushes and a water inlet at one end and a water tower and dam at the opposite end. There is a no fishing policy on the reservoir banks of the tree end. The banks are generally steep grassy slopes which certainly would not be ideal for disabled anglers, though there is at least one disabled swim. Buckshole Reservoir on a good day could hold approximately 30-40 anglers. Successful baits include boilies for the large carp, maggots and casters for the match fish and sprats or lures for the pike.
