Bedford - Fenlake

Longholme Way, Bedford, MK42 0, Beds, United Kingdom

The right (south) bank downstream from the old railway bridge near Longholme Way in Bedford to the end of the field being a point opposite Fenlake Anchor.
Nearly 1,000 metres of a navigable part of the river that runs from the railway bridge south-easterly, then easterly and then again south-easterly. On the whole wide for the upper Ouse and slow moving. The margins can suffer from weed growth during the summer so be prepared to fish from an existing cleared swim or take a weed rake. The opposite bank is lightly fished. Although on the outskirts of the town the bottom half is surprisingly peaceful.
Main species are bream (to 6+lbs), perch, pike (to mid teens), roach and tench. Large catches (well in excess of 100 lbs) of bream have been reported from this stretch. There are some chub and very large carp are frequently sighted during the summer months.
