Background to Angling...

Angling or Fishing is a very popular attraction within the Borough of Swale, with the presence of many fishing lakes where you can catch bass, garfish, eels, skate, plaice, dogfish, cod, flounders and much more.

It will be worth checking with the clubs and organisation if you need permits or they have any open sessions but there are fantastic lakes in Sittingbourne, Faversham and Sheppey as well as the opportunity for sea fishing from the Isle of Sheppey.


All activities offered by clubs overseen by a National Governing Body will be required to adhere to new procedures to protect participants. The Angling Trust is working with Sport England to support providers to get back to activities.
