BLUE­BELL LAKES, PETER­BOR­OUGH, CAMBS

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

As the former home of Ben­son, one of Bri­tain’s best­known carp, Blue­bell has earned its place as a truly leg­endary carp fish­ing com­plex. All the lakes on site hold fish to over 30lb, the two jew­els in the crown be­ing Swan and King­fisher, which con­tain mul­ti­ple 40lb and even 50lb spec­i­mens. To get among the fish on King­fisher cur­rently, it’s best to fish for a bite at a time. A small tight hand­ful of pel­lets, par­ti­cles or a light spread of 10mm boilies on clear mar­ginal ar­eas has been tempt­ing fish to over 30lb. The fish in King­fisher also love to spend time on the sur­face, and pa­tient feed­ing with dog bis­cuits can en­cour­age them to take. For those af­ter sil­vers, Blue­bell Lake boasts roach to over 2lb and some large bream. If you pre­fer flow­ing wa­ter, try Wil­low Creek which twists through the com­plex – it is home to chub over 6lb. Con­tact: 01832 226042 Post­code: PE8 5HP
