Welcome to The Wantsum Angling Association

Established in 1983, Wantsum Angling Association (WAA) was focused, as the name indicates, on fishing and managing a large section of the River Wantsum. The fishing rights were later extended to include a section of the River Stour at Plucks Gutter and then to the establishment and management of three lakes at Marshside.

Our waters are set in peaceful countryside in the heart of rural Kent surrounded by fields and marshland. The lakes at Marshside cover an area of approximately 7.5 acres with a combined total of 80 well-spaced swims.

Our lakes at Marshside, named Homersham,Little Homersham and Scroggins, are well stocked with a good variety of coarse fish which are maintained in excellent condition.

Wantsum Angling Association

The stretch of the River Wantsum, managed by WAA, is situated in the vicinity of the village St Nicholas at Wade extending towards the sea wall near Reculver. In this location, we have 30 prepared and maintained swims.

The River Stour at Plucks Gutter is an excellent stretch of tidal water where there are 26 prepared and maintained swims.

Day tickets are available for all our waters . Most can be purchased in advance from this website.
