Summerfields Trout Fishery
Open from September to June.
We are open Tuesdays*, Weekends and Bank Holidays.

The fishery is located between Haynes and Cotton End, in Bedfordshire.
The site has been a trout fishery since it was first excavated in the late 70's due to the extreme weather of 1976.
The lake is set within picturesque countryside, to one side is the A600, the other sides are countryside with an abundance of wildlife to include muntjac, herons, hare's, rabbits, kite, buzzard, pheasant.
The lake is in the shape of the letter 'n' , with crystal clear water, depths averaging 8 ft and the deepest area's at 35ft.
The trout are supplied at a minimum 2lb mark, with a selection going in at 3,4 and 5 lb, we also have brown trout stocked from 2lb to a few residents at 9lb, all browns must be returned.
We also have some roach and rudd within the lake and as such produce a lot of fry, which the trout have realised.
Our fish are known to be hard fighting and will test the tackle you use, however unbalanced tackle will not be rewarded.!
