About Rookery Waters
Rookery Waters is located within Rookery Farm, just outside Pidley, near St Ives. The family have farmed the 230 acre mixed farm (arable and beef) since the 1970’s and now run the fishery alongside it.
Rookery Waters began in 2002 when the family decided to change a water storage reservoir into a popular fishing lake; Rook. Since then, they have gone on to build four more lakes with varying features, catering for both pleasure and match fishing. In 2015 construction finished on The Rookery Café and Tackle and Bates Shop.
