Roughs lake is a real gem in the Embryo portfolio and holds a special place in some of our teams’ hearts. The mature, tree-lined lake is situated to the south of Peterborough on the edge of the open Fenland. The unique, shallow topography of the lakebed combined with tap-clear water creates for some extremely interesting fishing!

There are a handful of old, original fish in the lake to almost 30lb. In the winter of 2017/18 we complimented the stock with some fresh blood and introduced 18 fish between 16-24lb. Since then, we have introduced another 30-40 fish, many of which were absolutely stunning scaly mirrors, up to low twenties. These fish have really flourished and darkened up nicely in the clear water, offering the lake a really bright future.

Six of these fish have now been caught over 30lb, to a current lake record of 33lb 12oz, but we know there are a few more around this size yet to make an appearance, so this could be broken at any time!

Roughs is so much more than a ‘pounds and ounces’ water though. It’s a very beautiful, peaceful venue and very much one of those places where catching genuinely is a bonus!

The lake was fully fenced in 2017 to ensure this beautiful lake remains safe from predation forever.

Both the weekday and weekend waiting lists are now open for this venue.
