Named after the Dutch engineer responsible for the draining much of the East Anglian fens, Vermuyden Lake is a heavily stocked, former gravel pit of 2-3 acres. There are 200+ carp to over 30lb with virtually all of the stock over 10lbs.

The fishery is very popular with those new to carp fishing and also experienced anglers who enjoy plenty of arm-aching action. The carp respond well to all methods, but the conventional tactics of legering hair-rigged boilies on two rods tends to pick up the lake’s larger specimens.

The lake has a very good reputation for winter fishing, with carp being caught on the coldest of days. Both day and night tickets are available all year round.

All day ticket money must be posted through the letterbox in the front door of the bungalow before fishing commences. Please put your day ticket money in an envelope with your name, telephone number and car registration on the front of the envelope.
