add or change detailsLodden Lakes Complex
outskirts of Gillingham in Dorset, on the B3092 towards East Stour

The lakes are set outside the small town of Gillingham and is surrounded by fields and a small scale industrial site (which makes light bulbs). The lakes’ grounds are full of Oak trees and the actual lakes are surrounded with reeds. There are two lakes in this complex both lakes contain large fish over 20lbs. Although the lakes do not state that there is disabled access, the paths are very wide a spacious and are always kept in good condition!

Big lake or Car park Lake - Mirror carp to 25lb, common carp to 26lb, bream to 8lb, tench to 8lb, roach to 3lb. Little lake - Mirror carp to 21lb, common carp to 20lb and bream, tench, roach to similiar saze to the other lake. Pike to 25lb

A wide range of tactics can be used on these lakes to cater for any type of anglers. The majority of people who fish this lake are specialist carp fishermen so there are alot of boilies put into the water. Good tactics to use for carp fishing is the standard hair rigs and the other various forms of the hair rig. For match fishing I would recommend using the bagging wagler. For those of you who don’t know what the Bagging waggler is - it’s basically a large float with a method feeder on the bottom of the float.
