Iíve been on Swan for 3 3 night sessions and not seen a single rat I had heard it was bad before lockdown but seemed rat free on all different swims.

It's not an sssi....unless there's been a recent status attached for the presevation of land regularly populated by purple Argos tents..... .......owner always had dogs and its a dog friendly site so presume that's why no poison or traps...

Grim. I think Iím right in saying that if itís SSSI (donít know if it is or not btw) then they canít out down poison or traps.

I imagine its more the bait they're on rather than food/litter

I dread to think the amount of bait that gets dropped when spodding

Only been 3 times, soon as its dusk....never seen so many rats, it truly is rat city, not like the complex is strewn with litter either, but I've never fished anywhere that bad for rats.

Surely you have had the Rat problem? The Rats at Bluebell are legendary, always have been.....loads of them and they are huge....

Just shows how people's experiences differ, never had one of those problems stated a couple of posts ago, been there a handful of times in recent years as well.

Bluebell Looks lovely.....

3 rock hard lakes and 2 'easier' lakes...
You'll blank on Mallard for a week np if you don't happen to be in the right spot at this time of the year..... many swims stupidly close to the next so with people coming and going all the time your likely to get a noob spombing next to your spot right in front of you.... Not that spombing out is any good unless your in the right spot no matter what you spomb out.... the fish.... this time of year forget all the deep areas and just hope to get over to shallow weedy areas. - the easy spots next to the road can be poor this time of year (hot weather) other than the ends where you have shallower areas and weed. Finding weed in the deeper swims are targetting them produces nothing.

Swans are mental and will take your rods out - dominant males terrifying the youngsters across the lakes and if your rods are there then they'll be wiped out.... Birdlife constantly irritating, rats are huge.

Friendly welcome, high prices, shop with not a lot in it other than terminal tackle (they do have a few other bits but it's limited), shop sells a few grocery bits and if your lucky they'll have the generator on so the fridge is working for a cold coke.


If you like the smell of puff you'll be in for a good time...... Seems to be more the norm than not as one puff head goes another one drops in.

These are just my experiences of being there for a week recently.

You get to the lakes, go to the office, they give you a sticker for a bucket, go and find a swim and drop your bucket (held for 2 hours) go back to office/shop, pay for your fishing and of you go.

If so some people must have money to burn as well as time....
