Vermuyden Lake - Fenland Fisheries

Earith, Cambridgeshire

Named after the Dutch engineer responsible for the draining much of the East Anglian fens, Vermuyden Lake is a heavily stocked, former gravel pit of 2-3 acres. There are 200+ carp to over 30lb with virtually all of the stock over 10lbs. Located close to St Ives and Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire.

The fishery is very popular with those new to carp fishing and also experienced anglers who enjoy plenty of arm-aching action. The carp respond well to all methods, but the conventional tactics of ledgering hair-rigged boilies on two rods tends to pick up the lake’s larger specimens.

The lake has a very good reputation for winter fishing, with carp being caught on the coldest of days. Both day and night tickets are available all year round.

Carp up to 35lb
