A mature former quarryset in a quiet, wooded 38 acre site close to the Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, Burwell Fishing Lake (previously known as Burwell Brick Pit) contains a relatively unknown stock of carp, pike and silver fish.
In particular, carp to 35lb+ have been banked since June 16th, 2013, though far larger fish have been spotted.
A pike of 32lb+ was reported in November 2011.
Rudd to around 3lb+ have been banked throughout the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
In addition, the lake is home to roach, tench, perch, eels and possibly a scattering of (as yet uncaught) catfish.
Essentially, Burwell Fishing Lake thrived on neglect, having been fished only briefly during 2012.
Effectively comprising two pits connected by several deep channels - the first offering depths of 12-18 feet, the second averaging around 20 feet - the lake is approximately 20 acres in size.
