Main species include carp, crucian carp, bream, eels and silver fish.

September 2011
Fishing for catfish is now on offer at Wylands International Angling Centre on Maises Lake (charge 30.00 per 24hr session). Also planning permission has been granted for an onsite tackle shop in an existing area adjacent to the fishery office. According to the fishery manager, the anticipated opening date is towards the end of September 2011.

Reader Feedback:
My first and last visit to Wylands was a revelation. How on earth they can claim to be one of the uk's best angling centres is a mystery. The "Lakes " are nothing short of large ponds and not lakes at all. The swims are in appalling condition with high vegetation and weeds surrounded by mud. Ii fish many different venues and this is the only one Ii have vowed never to return to ... it really is that bad.

Reader Feedback:
(On the Wylands brochure they claim to be) ...`One of the Best Angling Centres' which is some statement considering the state of the swims and the amount of hidden snags, not only around the edges but also within the lakes themselves, and the state of some of the fish ( a lot of the carp have very badly damaged mouths ). It could well be a very good and very nice fishery if the money was spent on it properly, but when work is carried out without planning permission and against the forestry commission permissions, and they then try to get retrospective planning permission which again is refused then something is wrong with the management of this fishery regarding carrying out works. The latter is only my opinion, but I think valid.
