About Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon in Bedfordshire used to be an old chalk pit that was dug by hand in the 1850s. It was abandoned and allowed to flood around 1900 when work moved to the nearby Green Lagoon. The Green Lagoon is about 3 acres in size and has different depths around its edges, with the deepest part being 30 feet deep. The water stays warm even in winter, so the fish are active all year round.

In the spring, you can see different kinds of fish gathering in one spot to spawn, which is called ‘Magic corner’. There are Carp, Pike, Tench, Bream, skimmers, Rudd, Roach, Perch, and Crusian carp in the lake. The Carp are mostly in the upper teens in weight, but some can weigh over twenty pounds. The lake is popular with local fishermen, and many beginners start fishing here.

There isn’t a specific best spot to fish, as every area around the lake has produced good results. You don’t need to cast far out to catch fish, as many are caught close to the shore. Various baits can be used to catch the fish in the Green Lagoon.
