Advertisement: GREAT HOLIDAYS FOR ANGLERS AT PISCES COUNTRY PARK
ESTABLISHED in the 1940s and created as a tench fishery, Pisces Country Park covered just 18 acres and one lake.
Since its conception, Pisces has grown to over 15 acres, housing 3 lakes, 26 static vans, 1 static caravans and 1 log cabin.
Its location in the heart in the Fens, surrounded by its tranquil and beautiful countryside, makes Pisces an ideal base location for anybody looking for peace and quite, excellent fishing and much much more.
With villages and towns, such as Wisbech (the capital of the fens), March, Chatteris, Kings Lynn, Ely and its cathedral all less than 45 minutes away, its also a great base location for the casual shopper and sight seer too.
All the lakes have been reconditioned and fish stock levels increased, the surrounding parkland has been improved and chalets have been introduced in favour of static caravans.
Pisces Country Park is currently home to 1 static caravan, providing an excellent weekend retreat for their owners… are you looking to do the same?
Pisces are happy to announce new plots are available for siting of your very own chalet. Pisces Country Park can offer assistance in sitting your chalet, and great deals in conjunction with TingDene park homes. Pisces also offer you the option to sub-let your chalet throughout the year.
With 3 lakes, heavily stocked with a wide variety of species, Pisces Country Park offers some of the best fishing in the country. From the heavy rigged carp down to the whip and pole angler, Pisces offers it all.
As a regular visitor, Bob Nudd MBE has used the park for 5 of his latest educational DVD’s and has this to say…. “Pisces Country Park has some of the best fishing lakes in the country, all the lakes have very high stock levels, with a great variety of species, enabling you to catch fish all the year round.”

Fishing at Pisces
With over 10 acres of water across 3 lakes, combined with a variety of specimens, you’re sure of a great days fishing at Pisces Country Park.
Two of our lakes are stocked with all types of specimens, from double-figure carp through to roach. The other two lakes offer silver fish only, and being heavily stocked, these lakes will produce an excellent day’s bag for those that prefer the pole and whip.
Couple all that with the beautiful picturesque scenery, abundance of wildlife including roe deer, badgers, kingfishers and many other species of small birds, plus all the Lakes being just minutes away from your chalet, and you will see why Pisces Country Park is so popular all year round.
Anglers will be glad to note that your stay here at Pisces also permits fishing, free of charge.
4 Acres This is our largest lake and the place for those seeking to tackle our hard-fighting, double-figure common and mirror carp. Just make sure your tackle is up to the job. Try floating dog biscuit on a lazy summer evening for some explosive action. The lake also supports a good head of bream, tench, perch, ide, new F2 carp and crucian carp, chub (stocked in 2007) plus specimen roach and rudd. Pike anglers are also well catered for with fish to 25lb, though please note that live-baiting is prohibited.
1 Acre Reshaped and landscaped a couple of years ago this delightful lake is where you are most likely to see former World Champion Bob Nudd indulging in his favourite pastime. Heavily stocked with bream, tench, roach, rudd, perch, ide and crucian carp this is the ideal lake for the pole angler seeking a mixed bag of quality fish. Children and beginners will also love this lake, where simple waggler fishing with maggot can produce a great days’ sport in a great setting.
3 Acres Probably the most picturesque lake on the park, this water is packed with a variety of interesting swims, many of which are secluded from view by the surrounding vegetation. As with the two previous lakes stock levels are extremely high, and the sizeable head of double-figure carp, plus many specimen-sized fish of all the above-named species, means that the only thing likely to spoil a perfect day is exhaustion, as yet another personal-best comes to the net.
2.5 Acres Previously a small wildlife lake, ‘Grebe’ has been dramatically enlarged over winter. An existing head of roach and rudd have recently been supplemented by the introduction of over 1,000 small bream and tench, making this the ideal venue for the whip angler keen to perfect his or her technique. The lake is also home to the rare spined loach, a fact that illustrates the diversity and quality of the habitats provided on our park.
