Albury Lake is a carp lake based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom. It has a stock of around carp and is 9.5 Acres in size. The biggest carp is over 30lb+
Albury Lake is located in a unique setting, right in the middle of the racecourse track, and is fully otter fenced around the entire perimeter of the lake. The lake is 9.5 acres and in places goes down to as much as 38 feet deep. The carp fishing lake was depth mapped in early 2019 and a 2D image can be found below, you will be able to see all of the variances of the lake bottom contours.
Originally it was stocked many years ago with pike and trout and then left to its own devices. Because of the depth, we have been unable to have the lake netted to see exactly what is stocked in there, so it’s a real mystery lake.
We stocked the lake in October 2018 with over 230 high quality pure English carp from Simmo’s and Lenny strain. They have been fed on pellet and boilie during this time and have packed on the weight dramatically. There have only been a few test fishing days since we stocked the lake, other than that we have allowed the carp to settle in, feed and grow. We then opened in May 2020 to our members.
This lake will not be a runs water, we have the space and depth for the stock to grow. Albury Lake will be known as a big fish water in a short period of time. We also added some twenties to the stock and look forward to see how they are getting on in Albury.
Albury Lake has 14 very spacious swims with good reed coverage at either end of the lake. There are brick built toilet facilities, with hot and cold running water. Right across from the lake is the Holiday Inn Hotel, who look forward to welcoming our members if they want to reel in and go for a drink or bite to eat. There is a secure onsite car park which is locked at night for members security.
