That said, experiences may differ and the success of a day out at Burley Fields is in the eye of the angler.
Reports suggest Burley Fields Lake is particularly kind to beginners, so it may be just the spot for anglers trying to get a bite on early. There are rules, however, so it’s best to familiarize oneself with what’s expected before setting out for the water.
What size do the fish go to?
Burley Fields Lake apparently has carp up to 30 pounds, perch up to four pounds, roach at two pounds, barbel over eight pounds, golden tench clocking in at two pounds, bream over the five-pound mark, and chub over four pounds.
What tactics work well?
The best baits to use at Burley Fields are boilies, meat, corn, and maggots.
Fishing is best done close to the margins when the sun is going down, while the island turns up good catches during the day. There’s plenty of opportunity close to the bridge, too, so get creative and explore Burley Fields Lake.
Groundbait, barbed hooks, and keepnets are all prohibited at this site.
Anglers must have a carp mat and landing net.
Is parking available?
There is no lakeside parking at Burley Fields.
