h&b is a club worth looking at , couple of pits about 15mins drive away one heavily stocked one not so . good chance of a fish up there . you have stanbrough down the road (not my cup of tea) also verulam have a few waters not to far from the nage , good club with lots on offer .
few more warters bit further away , also fairlands should be up and running again soon .
I'm not a fan of stanborough,saturdays the lake is used for boating. I've also heard the 2 best swims are now pole fishing only.
Also no night fishing allowed.
The hyde will get you a good size carp or 2 but there is no harm trying both lakes,everybody has their own opinions.
sorry lads hitchin and biggleswade angling club , got a couple a few decent waters . a couple that should be up your street .
a few other clubs in the area as well with alsorts of waters .

just spotted the her indoors comment so i guess you have a car , try Luton another good club about 40min drive for you to beckerings or up the a1 to north house 3/4 30+ carp in there with a good head of back up fish as well . sound bailiff up there who will put you on the right track . Luton also has the canal brilliant fishery bit of a treck but worth it , if you fish it this time of year fish and hour a spot then move untill you catch or bait 6/7 spots a few times then fish them on the same principle , the chance of a 20/30 or if you are lucky maybe bigger . once the water has a bit of warmth about it they move more in there and you can sit it out and wait for them .
yes howell hyde is pay on bank,£6 a rod 2 rod max £4.50 per rod kids.
dawn till dusk although its the same price whether you fish full or half day!!!!
your suppose to prebook a night and its £15 plus your £6 per rod for the days either side if you stay on. eg fish sat all day £12 sat night £15 sun all day £12 = £39 adds up over a season so not the cheapest of day ticket venues but nearly a sure bet for a catch.
ive been helping out my brother in laws,only started fishing last year and have all caught high doubles and one had a 21lb,good for the confidence when starting out to catch a few.
have fun let us know how you got on!

Apparently there is a gravel bar running between 2 of the islands (far one and middle one). Not sure how true this rumor is as I haven't looked for it myself. One things for sure is that the fish do seem to like it between them islands.
no i wasnt down there that early.ive heard stanborough is frozen aswell.
the wife got me a new bivvy for xmas and a new bedchair and porter is on the way next month so really looking forward to getting to the lake again.
I got a new bivvi as well. Do you know anything about the two lakes in weston, ive been told about them but cant find anything on the web. I went to Holwell today and its still frozen and your right about stanborough, frozen solid.
