Bobby George Lakes


Slough Lane, Colchester, CO7 7RU, Essex, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

A coarse fishery, the Bobby George Lakes are located in Colchester, East of England. Anglers can fish here with a valid daily permit or with a permit bought from the Angling Club.

The surface of the lake is of only 1.5 acres; however, the main attraction point is the surroundings. Everything there is surrounded by 12 acres of natural woodland, making for the perfect weekend retreat for anglers. In fact, the fishery can be booked by groups of a minimum of 20 people. They will enjoy full days of fishing, included breakfast, buffet, drinks, and so on.

When it comes to species, the main fish are Carp, Roach, Bream, Perch, Chub, Tench, and Rudd. Each fishing location is properly set up and features boats, as well as wooden platforms for better support of the angler.

Reportedly, the owner of the fishery can provide more than just a warm welcome, including life stories.
