Nine individual reservoirs make up the Walthamstow Reservoir network but 1, 2 and 3 are the ones that carp anglers will be interested in. With some prestigious fish running to over 40lb and depths averaging 10 to 12 feet, it can be tricky at times.
19 acres, ave depth: 10ft
Reservoir 1 is the easiest of the coarse fisheries. It holds many carp up to 37lb,
Large beds of particles, pellets or boilies are often successful.
Reservoir 2 & 3
25 acres, ave depth: 10ft
This is the premier carp reservoir with three fish (common and mirror) having been caught in excess of 40lb. The largest, a beautiful mirror of 45lb 12oz. There are many 30lb+ specimens (many 35lb+), backed up with a huge number of 20s.
