Rackley Hills lake is situated on the outskirts of Leighton Buzzard, close to the by pass. Entry is via the access road to Grundfos Pumps. The lake is an old sand quarry, disused for many years it has matured into an attractive lake. Despite the surrounding factory units anglers can feel as if they are in a countryside setting.
The lake varies in depth from two feet to twelve feet. There is a small amount of weed growth in the margins and little elsewhere. The lake is well known for its catfish stocks which currently reach 55lb. There are numerous fish in the 20/30 and 40lb range. The lake also contains a good head of carp, some of which have been caught close to thirty pounds. Recently the lake was stocked with fast growing Simmonds mirror carp at 4lb-5lb. Last year some of these fish were caught at 15lb-17lb which indicates an impressive growth rate.
