Bluebell Lakes

Bluebell Lakes was established 14 years ago, opening in 1994, it has become one of, if not the very best big fish day ticket waters in the country. We believe that Bluebell Lakes is the also the only fishery in the country with two 60lb fish, ‘Benson’ and ‘The Creature’ with several back up fish from 40lb to high 50lband a massive number or carp for 20lb to 30lb.


Big carp is what Bluebell Lakes is famous for, but that’s not to say that there aren’t other species worth fishing with huge pike recorded at 41lb, beautiful bream, tench, chub, perch and roach. There are six lakes to choose from, two big fish waters ‘Kingfisher and ‘Swan’, two mixed fish water ‘Bluebell’ and ‘Sandmartin’, one dedicated carp runs water ‘Mallard’ and a small fish coarse pool ‘Wood Pool’. We also have a magnificent 2 mile stretch of the ‘River Nene’. All in all its top quality so come and visit us.




March - Mark Hogg's ealy season brace consisting of a 37lb Mirror and 42lb 8oz Common, sets the standard for a sensational 2007


August - Bev Street lands a Catfish at 66lb to break an 85 year old record for the biggest coarse fish landed by a femal angler.


October - Benson out at 61lb and The Creature out at 60lb.


These two fish now establish Bluebell Lakes as the only fishery with Two 60lb fish!
