Summerfields Trout Fishery
We are now CLOSED till 5th September
We have made the decision to close the lake from 26th June 2020 until 5th September due to the extremely high water temperature.
We don't want you to have a day with little or no activity and we also don't want to lose fish.
It would be quite easy to take your money and pretend everything is okay, but this is not what we are about. Keep an eye on the website and the blog for updates as we will be doing work on the land whilst we are shut.
Please book places as before through the website.
Summerfields Trout Fishery
Open from September to June, weekends only.
If you would like to book during the week as a group then get in touch
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.!
