Nazeing Meads

Nazeing Meads

Three large settlement lagoons for the Lee Flood Relief system totalling 125 acres plus Brackens Pool, a small enclosed gravel pit of 2.5 acres. Both the main lagoons and Brackens Pool are typical gravel pits containing numerous underwater features.


The main lagoons hold specimen Carp to over 46lbs, specimen Bream over 17lbs, plus large Tench, Chub, Eels and double figure Pike. Brackens Pool is well stocked with Carp ranging from low doubles to 38lbs. A good percentage of the specimens are over 20lb.


For Carp find features such as bars, plateaus, holes in weed beds and gullies. A subtle approach in the edge scores well on Brackens.


The main lakes are typical gravel pits containing numerous underwater features; hence location is the key to catching fish. Generally most modern rigs with boilies over pellet or particles will produce. Air drying or using artificial baits can be beneficial in some areas due to crayfish. Be prepared to move, however, both the mobile and static approach will score on this venue.


Two rods per angler limit is imposed on Brackens Pool, three rods maximum on the main lagoons. Anglers fishing in the vicinity must be aware of overhead power cables.
Additionally be aware of notices around Brackens Pool regarding bait quantity restrictions.
N/B Brackens gate must be locked closed at all times.
Please note: both North and Centre Lagoons are shared with sailing clubs, in particular the Centre can see a lot of Sailing activity during the summer months .


There are two types of Season Permit available for Nazeing Meads; a Day/Night and a Day Only Season Permit. For season permit availability contact the Fisheries Office .
