    Thumbs up Waterbeach Angling Club, Cambridge

    We are a small club just north of Cambridge with several sections on the River Cam at would you believe Waterbeach. The Cam is a slow moving Fenland river with big shoals of brea, plenty of roach and Tence, plus some really big Rudd. Carp to over 35lbs are also present, so all in all not a bad little river.
    We also have a fishery in Landbeach the next door village. This consists of 3 lake s [at present] Leland Water, Atkins Water and Magpie lake.
    Leland Water is our big fish water with carp up to 37lbs plus several other 30s and plenty of 20s. Costs £15 a day for 2 rods but day tickets must be booked in advance. We encourage experienced carp anglers to come alongith the correct tackle. The othger 2 lakes are doughnut shaped and contain carp, rudd, roach, bream, tench etc. Magpie is a designated day ticket water with tickets available on the bank [concessions available] Atkins is both a day ticket and members lake sso purchase a club book to fish free from April 1st to March31st. Again concessions are available.
    Checkout our website www.waterbeachac.co.uk and our Facebook page to see our superb fisheries

    I was recently looking at your clubs webpage Colin regarding your sections of the Cam, I think there could be more interest on a forum like this for your river stretches that hold 2lb Rudd with the new river season approaching

    You're welcome, I had already printed off your map of waters so any additional info regarding the best stretches to try for big rudd would be more than welcome

    Downstream of Bottisham lock best to walk away from the few that will be in the first section. Beyond the Kissing gate then work your way along. Best times in the evenings. Pennywort is a problem in late summer.
    Good luck

    Sounds really nice Colin and those Rudd sound mouth-wateringly good!!!
    I was down at Bottisham a fortnight ago to attend the Zander anglers mini conferance .
    Sadly the round trip from Sheffield was rather a long one so unfortunately I will have to say I won't be able to get down there as much as I'd like to.
    I hope your post has the effect you hope for!

    I'll give that a go sometime Colin and will put up a catch report regardless on how I got on, cheers

    I was at the ZAC do as well, heckling my fishing partner Alan Ward about fly fishing for predators. Small world.
