River Nene

Our two mile stretch of the River Nene complete with lock and weirs is one of Bluebells enchanting features. the reeded margins, lilly pads and bankside vegetation make this an idyllic setting for a days fishing, and most importantly the river holds a good head of fish and can provide wonderful sport. Plenty of bite and a wide variety of species for your net including, gudgeon, roach, perch, bream, tench and chub. A top tip for specimen anglers, try out your carp methods for river chub and don't be surprised if you land a 6 pounder.

As you would expect our reputation for providing big fish also extends to the river. Carp fishing on the Nene is easy and can be prolific, the best Bluebell river caught common carp stands at a very impressive 36lb. Large pike can also be found with specimens to 20lb having been taken and where fish in the 6 - 15lb bracket are commonplace.

The river provides over 80 pegs, most of which are accessible by car (subject to dry conditions ). River fishing at its best without those long walks and within sight of your vehicle.
