Willow Lake at Fenland Fisheries opened for business on March 1st after a short winter break, and the fishing has been nice and steady with good numbers of fish being banked. Nick Burton fished in peg 7 and caught 6 Mirrors including two thirties at 35 and 34lb plus backed with four twenties to 28lb 8oz. Dave Cox did a quick overnight session in swim 12 and was rewarded with a 32lb 7oz Mirror and Dan Green also fished peg 12 taking a very nice Mirror at 26lb 6oz.Sam Harnett used maggot rigs for two low twenties during his 48 hour visit , Paul Myhill also had a 23lb plus Mirror using a 10mm pop-up tipped with maggots. Vermuyden Lake at the same venue is as usual producing some very consistent sport, with good numbers of twenties being caught. We have a small number of spaces available for Willow Lake this spring, so ring the shop on 01487 841858 to make you’re booking.

Abbey Lake is also now open and the first groups have done rather well! Keith Dye and the Sheffield crew fished in some horrendous conditions but managed to bank several fish to mid-twenties. They were followed by Tim, Greg and Jake from Biggleswade who also did very well with Tim bagging 6 to 24lb 7oz, Greg had five to 26lb 2oz and the baby of the bunch Jake caught two including a stunning mirror of 25lb. Abbey Lake is fully booked for weekends this year and only a few slots remain for mid week sessions in mid/late summer, see web site for booking details.

Greenacres also opened its doors to visiting Anglers last week and the fishing has been exceptional with over 20 fish gracing the bank in the first week! Jamie Collins and crew from Hertford banked 13 fish between them, to over 30lb and cannot wait to get back for their August bank holiday session! The few remaining spaces on Greenacres for this year can be booked by calling Dave Mennie on 07738754764.

The best capture of last week has to be Keith Dyes 40lb 3oz Mirror, from our Woodpecker Lake Syndicate, Keith also banked a lovely Common of 27lbs plus, congratulations Keith on a fine bit of Angling.
