    Re: Pixies Lake, Bourne End

    There's another lake on the other side of the canal.
    Thinking about it, that is the lake I see from the towpath.
    Westbrook mere.

    Boxmoor AC have it on their club book.

    Re: Pixies Lake, Bourne End

    I've looked at it many times from the canal towpath.
    Very scenic lake with pads and reeds. It's rarely busy from what I've seen. The canal there is full of carp and bream, some great roach fishing...

    Re: How did you get on?

    As the wind had died down I tried in vain to get a bite from the bream in the town pit. Gave it 3 hours on method and gb with double dead maggots on a 18. At one point I heard movements from inside...
