Grebe Lake, Emberton Park

The pretty Grebe Lake is a historic water set within the popular holiday complex, Emberton Park.

The park life is always busy with runners, dog walkers, children etc, so be prepared!

All the lakes are pretty unknown and in the warmer months carp can be seen bow waving along the surface or sending up plumes of mud from the bottom.

Roads within the complex provide lakeside parking and also allow you to get pretty close to the river as well.

There is a fee for taking your car into the complex but fishing is free if you have an MKAA season ticket.

Facilities during the school holidays and throughout the the summer include a small general store, cafe and a newly revamped toilet block.

Most species are present in the lakes including carp to 28lbs, tench over 8lb, some hefty bream and pike to 30 lbs.

On its day the river looping around the park can be a real cracker, and the weir pool holds barbel, chub, dace roach and so on.

Jimmy began his angling on the river Ouse with his father fishing for roach. His passion grew quickly and developed into an out and out specimen hunter.
