Opening in the spring of 2020, North Bank in Peterborough is the ultimate social lake and is available to fish on an exclusive booking basis only, with a maximum of eight anglers.
All of the swims are positioned on a central island/spit with the car park and BBQ hut/area in the centre, providing an ideal area for socialising (See lake map opposite. Swipe left for depth map).
Being an ex-trout fishery that had remained unfished for many years, there were no existing fish (except for a few small silver fish) in the lake when we took it on, so it was a completely blank canvas.
We really wanted this venue to be something very special so we have stocked the lake with 170 fish; a mixture of absolutely stunning carp supplied by Mark Simmond’s, Priory Fisheries and VS Fisheries. All of whom supplied us with some of their very finest carp!
These fish consisted of a diverse mix of scaly, linear, sparsely scaled and leathery mirrors with a few commons thrown in! The majority of the fish were over 20lb with a couple over 30lb so it already has a great stock of quality fish and we expect these fish to grow extremely well in the rich, clear water with many sure to break the 30lb barrier within a year!
North Bank is a venue we are extremely excited about here at Embryo and the future is certainly looking very bright indeed.
