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.
The recent warmer weather has really made a huge difference to the sport for the pleasure anglers on Rook Lake, with carp, tench and big perch all falling to basic tactics. The inform baits at the moment are maggot, pellets, meat and corn all producing good sport.
After a chat with Alex in the shop, Chatteris based angler Phil Brightman took the advice on offer and bagged this gorgeous 16lbs 5oz common, so as you can clearly see, the rewards are there to be taken.
Top Tip - Keep the bait going in to keep the fish coming, little and often is the way to keep the bites coming all day!
