Bluebell Lake Key Details
Swan Lake, Bluebell Lakes
If you’re daunted by the size of Mallard Lake, and the other tricky venues on the Bluebell complex, then Bluebell Lake will be right up your street.
It has a large stocking density compared to the others and you will always have a chance of a bite or two, with multiple hits regular.
Target the snags and overhangs for big hits in the warmer months.
What do I need to know?
It’s also the most varied lake on the venue, with plenty of tench and bream present, though it’s the carp that most people come here for.
On a warm summer’s day these carp can be readily seen on the surface and it’s a great water for stalking and floater fishing.
There are plenty of features, with overhanging trees, lilies and also snags that the carp frequent at all times of year.
This water is best approached with short-range, mobile tactics, especially at either ends of the lake again because the margins are littered with features.
A 20-pounder is a distinct possibility, though continued stocking means there are plenty of smaller younger fish coming through.
There are also a fair few thirties present.
If you set up in the middle of the lake, which is relatively narrow, remember to be aware of anglers’ lines on the opposing bank because it can be quite tight at times.
Don’t go to the Bluebell Lake without these:
