Boilies are not permitted on The Blunham Lake
This is a mature 2-acre lake surrounded by a fringe of reeds The average depth of Blunham is 7-8 foot, going down to 12 feet in places. The lake has 23 swims with parking available down one side making it ideal for anglers less able to walk. However, we do ask anglers not to drive around the lake or on the grass.
The lake is stocked with a mixture of coarse fish including roach, rudd, perch, tench, bream and carp. This is a truly well stocked mixed fishery ideal for pleasure anglers. The Blunham Lake fishes well as the water begins to warm up, and is a good starter lake for juniors or inexperienced anglers to be introduced and progress in the sport, fishing a pole or running line with maggots nearly always produces fish, and be prepared for one of the larger inhabitants to take your bait. Some carp in this lake are now pushing over 20lb and there are plenty of doubles to be had. We do not allow boilies on this lake, but luncheon meat, sweet corn and pellets are all effective baits. Fishing close in the margin is an excellent tactic if you are able to keep quiet and still, as is surface fishing in the summer months. It is possible to really bag up fishing off the top if you can get them feeding confidently as Dick Vale proved this year with a haul of 30 fish in one evening session.
Average lake depth is 8ft down to 12 ft in places. The best fishing is around the margins. Maggots work well for silver fish. perch and tench. We have recently introduced a boilie ban on this lake to ensure that pleasure anglers can make best use of the water. Bigger carp can be caught on pellets, luncheon meat, sweetcorn and dog biscuit off the surface.
