Silksworth Lakes were created in the early eighties as a part of the reclamation of the old Silksworth Pit. The entire site was developed to include an athletics track, artificial ski slope, a large all weather games area and two lakes. The lake known as the Bottom Lake was established as a fishing venue whilst the Top Lake was originally designed for on the water activities. i.e. boating etc.The bottom lake very quickly became a popular angling venue and has continued to thrive over the years. The top lake has now come under the wing of the Sunderland Freshwater Angling Club and received an initial stocking of carp in 2006 as the commencement of developing it as a specimen venue.Bailiffs from SFAC patrol the whole area daily and all anglers may be asked to produce their NRL and club membership card/day ticket at any time.Night fishing is only permitted with the written authority of SFAC.
