Earith Lakes Fisheries was purchased in April 2011 by Martin & Alex Dawson with an ambition of creating a mixed fishery; One of only a few providing Trout, Coarse and Pleasure fishing on the same complex. We are currently offering Trout fishing on a membership and day ticket basis and a Carp syndicate membership with plans in place to create a Pleasure/Match lake (already dug and ready to open in late 2013/early 2014) and eventually a more commercial Carp coarse lake. In addition to this we have our own 'growing on' ponds providing high quality Brown and Rainbow Trout for stocking throughout the year.
Earith Lakes Fisheries is located in the heart of the Fenlands surrounded by the villages of Somersham, Bluntisham, Colne and Earith.
The lakes are located on a glacial bed of gravel with gin clear filtered water most of the year. We are surrounded by unspoilt countryside boasting an abundance of wildlife from deer, badgers and water voles to Owls, kingfisher, woodpeckers and Oyster catchers. Occasionally buzzards can be seen soaring the sky above the lakes.
During the 1960's the mineral company Amy Roadstone converted 36 acres of wheat field into a number of lakes by extracting the high quality sand and gravel of the region. This resulted in the creation of 2 beautiful lakes and a number of smaller ponds filled by the constant running of gravel filtered water from the underground river bed.
The lakes were originally purchased by Ken McLennan who developed them into one of the best coarse and fly fisheries in the region, stocked with the finest Rainbow and Brown Trout. After living in a caravan for many years Ken finally received permission in 1991 to build a house on the premises, naming it "Hawamahal" meaning palace of the winds. The fishery has been further developed over the years and is now undergoing a upgrade and refurbishment program to equal its past fly fishing reputation and further develop the coarse fishing offer.
