Summer fishing goes from strength to strength

This summer has set the record for being the most successful yet at Head Fen Lakes and Fisheries, near Pymoor and Little Downham in Ely.

The gloriously long summer is a welcome site for many anglers and with the weather acting predictable for once, it makes for a rather enjoyable and productive day out.

As always Head Fen Lakes and Fisheries are open for matches, with many a challenger trying their hand at beating the current record at Snake Lake. This record currently stands with a carp weighing over 200lb and if you’d like to try your hand, everybody’s welcome.

There are many matches held by local clubs and groups at the lakes. Recent winners have caught a variety of species including Carp, Chub, Bream, Perch, and Tench spread across all three lakes. A recent match at Trevs Lake saw the winners catch fish weighing a fantastic 97lb, 71lb and 70lb.

Head Fen Lakes and Fisheries have also welcomed many new budding anglers to the site this summer. “Head Fen Lakes and Fisheries is the perfect lake to take first time anglers and have loved attending myself for many years. My son accompanied me for the first time this summer and absolutely loved it … he can’t wait to go back again.” Ian Jenkins, local enthusiast.

Fish Spawning

Warmer water means many of our fish our spawning. During this time fish may not be as hungry and therefore not “biting” as much. Spawning can take from between 2-4 weeks depending on the size of the lakes, it can in some cases take longer.
