Rodney Meadow covers around twelve acres, with large bays at either end which provide intimate areas where the fish like to lay up.
Gravel bars can be found all over the lake and the silt beds are teeming with naturals such as shrimp and blood worm, providing large amounts of natural food in the summer. There are large areas of reed beds and in the summer months lily pads spring up in several places.
Not to be classed as an easy water, Rodney Meadow will reward anglers willing to put in the effort with some truly beautiful fish. The current lake record is 47lb 4oz with a fish known as The ¾ Linear. There are about six fish over 30lb, the biggest of which is known as Three Scale and weighs in at 38lb 2oz. There are three ghost carp to 25lb plus, lots of upper twenties, and silver stock and tench to 7lb. For the pike angler there are a small number of pike present to 22lb.
Rodney Meadow is accessed through combination-locked gates and is situated at the end of a long drive hundreds of metres from the nearest main road.
The venue has two car parks, allowing access to opposite ends of the lake, the first of which is shared with neighbouring venue Mayfields and is where the toilet facilities are located.
