Welcome to  Wantsum Angling Association.

Established in 1983, 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 two 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 70 well-spaced swims. Should you like to fish overnight, with prior arrangement, then you will find space to erect a bivvie.

Our lakes at Marshside, HOMERSHAM and SCROGGINS, are well stocked with a good variety of coarse fish which are maintained in excellent condition.

HOMERSHAM Lake is a mixed lake supporting larger species such as Carp whereas SCROGGINS, having a similar mix, is balanced more towards silver fish. Refer to the specific venue tabs above for more details.

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.
