NACA Bawburgh Lakes Fishery

Lodge Farm LakeAnyone wishing to fish for pike at the lakes will have to attend a pike handling and welfare day which is hosted by the PAC during the year. All the lakes are fishable throughout the year but areas are subject to closure at any time and the fishery will be closed to angling on the date of the Bawburgh Open Day. A lake will be closed to pike fishing in the winter; also the close season applies to the river.

The three largest lakes known as Bawburgh Lake, Lodge Farm Lake, and Colney Lake and also including Lenny's Lake have been developed as premier specimen fisheries and hold a number of species including carp to 40.12, tench 11.5, bream 18.15 and pike to 33.05.

Colney Lake produced the official UK rod-caught bream record in spring 2004, prior to which the record was held by a fish of 18.08 from Lodge Farm Lake, but all these lakes produce superb double figure tench and bream. Colney 1 Lake is also the home of "Kens Fish" claimed by many carp anglers to be one of the best looking fish in the region and always a sort after fish as it often holds a weight of around 40lbs

The main attraction of the fishery however is the carp fishing during the spring and summer months and pike fishing in the winter. As a carp fishery, Bawburgh Lakes is very much an up and coming venue, having been carefully and selectively stocked with this species since the fishery was opened and it is envisaged that it will eventually become one of the counties premier carp fisheries as the stock-fish grow into large specimens. Already a number of our stockfish have grown to well over 30 lbs. Various strains of carp have been introduced from the EA, Fishers pond, Dinton Pastures and we are looking to introduce some Horseshoe Lake fish shortly, this stocking regime has been carefully planned to give low density stocking from safely regulated providers, to ensure a blend of fish that are desirable to catch but also provides longevity to the fishery, we currently stock around thirty selected carp every year.

Lenny's Lake is a special venue and is fishable only on the full permit, and is stocked slightly more heavily than the bigger lakes with carp up to mid-thirties and good numbers of specimen tench to 8lb. Being too small to cope with intense angling pressure this lake has a 2-rod, 48-hour stay, 48-hour return limit.
