Silver End Front Pit - The KDAAs foresight in purchasing the Front Pit has guaranteed members quality fishing for the future. This mature 2.1/2 acre gravel pit has been developed into an excellent general fishery with large shoals of rudd, roach, bream, perch and crucian carp. Early season tench fishing can be spectacular with good bags and individual fish to over 7lbs. Double figure carp are present in large numbers with a few fish breaking the 30lb barrier. Other fish of note are pike in excess of 20lbs and eels to over 5lbs.
Silver End Back Pit - The Back Pit has been developed as a specimen fishery. Most species are present to specimen size with roach and rudd to over 2lbs and tench and bream to over 9lbs. Carp are the main quarry for anglers in this very rich fishery with many fish in excess of 20lbs and some over the 35lb barrier.
Very large pike are also present which have been caught in excess of 25lbs. The early season tench fishing can be truly spectacular. The average size is high with bags usually made up with fish in the 4lb to 6lb range. These tench respond well during spring and early summer to tactics more associated with roach. Single and double maggot presented on pole or waggler tactics will often tempt when more conventional methods are less productive until later. A good stock of bream is also present up to 12lb.
A toilet is located in the rear car park.
Members must not use more than two rods at any time with the exception of night permit holders who may fish with three rods on Silver End Back Pit between 1st November and 31st March providing they have two EA rod licences and fish in a manner so as not to interfere with any members already fishing or wishing to fish
