Bluebell Lakes.

Bluebell Lakes offers specimen, pleasure and competition angling on four lakes, a match pool and a two mile stretch of the River Nene and one of its backwaters in surroundings which vary from tree clad lakes to open gravel pits to grass banked river. Perhaps best known of the waters is the nationally renowned Kingfisher Lake which has to date produced two Common Carp over 50lbs and several fish over 30lbs. These include 'Benson' at 55lbs 12oz. In addition there are catfish over 30lbs, Grass Carp over 30lbs, bream to 14lbs and tench into double figures. The other waters offer a similar stamp of fish with pike well into the 30s - the Pike Anglers Club hold regular events at the fishery - whilst even the river produces monster fish with carp over 30lbs, perch to 3lbs, eels over 7lbs, roach to 2lbs and tench to 10lbs plus. Despite its reputation for specimen fish, Bluebell Lakes is also a pleasure angler's fishery. You don't have to become a reclusive 'camper' to enjoy good catches and plenty of fun in attractive surroundings!

Bluebell Lakes is reached from the main A14 which runs east/west across Northamptonshire. At the A45/A605 junction on the A14 at Thrapston take the A605 north towards Titchmarsh, Oundle and Peterborough. After several miles you pass the turning to Oundle on the left. A short distance further, again on the left, is a turning for Tansor. Drive through Tansor, ignoring the turn marked "Village Only", and just after you leave Tansor the white railings marking the entrance to Bluebell Lakes can be seen on the left.
