Nothing to do with what's left or right. Last year they had to close swims and ban baiting temporarily as the spots were so sour and nitrate levels so high fish were dying. I agree the complex is lovely but I'd think most would agree that the above is concerning.

Obvious to me a lot of people worry too much about what's left and what's right of them. I have been to the complex many times and fish for stunning fish in stunning surroundings, never once have I been remotely concerned about anything, apart from the barbless rule.

I put aside a weekend or two every year since the late 90s to visit bluebell. It was always busy but if you kept your eyes open and kept on your toes you'd get on fish on any of the waters. It was brilliant.
But like many/all day ticket waters since lockdown in 2020 the place is just silly now. I haven't been in 2 years and unless something significant changes I cannot see myself ever going again. Shame as some of those kippers are awesome.

Full of undesirables..... stoners... one leaves and you think thank god some fresh air and then another drops in... I will never go back there again...

This was my experience of Bluebells.

As the saying goes... it is what it is...

I will be going down Wednesday afternoon as I realised last time I went it is the best time to turn up. I am open to fishing any lake apart from bluebell lake. As for stitching up the best pegs you get that on most lakes these days, but each to there own. It gives me more satisfaction if I catch from a part of the lake no one expected.

Members also stitch up the going pegs on Kingfisher between them but that can happen on any water...
So if you see a bivvy in a swim for 48hrs and no one materialises then don't think they've died or somethings wrong they've probably gone home for a few days.
It happened when I was there last Summer

You have to go with an open mind to what water you fish on the complex yes you will have your preferences.
Dont understand why people turn up at the gate at 8 and join a queue as most people wont be looking to leave till midday onwards.!! Fished Mallard last month and had a good hit but got where I wanted to be. Does seem to be a lot on a jolly and the constant smell of drugs was the only downer on my last visit

My first visit to bluebell was early October, and there was plenty of pegs available, I wouldnít say it was quiet but sort of what I expected. I went back early November and same again. Iím planning on going Wednesday for 5 nights but with it been a 2 an half hour drive I donít want to be wasting my time if I have no chance of a peg hence why Iv asked.

When did you go? That sort of behaviour is no longer allowed apparently (although I haven't been there for a long while)

When are you going back

Seriously Iíd rather dodge dog s*#t and K drinking loons on my local parks than be amongst that.

I suppose you can tick it off the list now any way .

I agree it sounds like carp hell

I gave it a go for a night as I was working away in the area. There was one space in the corner of the c**ppy Bluebell lake on a Tuesday night. Bait boats everywhere on a tiny lake, tents the size of Centre Parks, flood lights in the swim and the first time Iíve ever seen an actual TV aerial on the the roof of a bivvy!

My idea of fishing hell, but obviously popular for some.
