New Rules for Leland water

News and Results

Our club is based around the villages of Waterbeach and Landbeach, near Cambridge.

Our waters are on the River Cam and two of it's tributaries, plus we have our own still-water complex.  This includes Leland Water, Atkins Water and Magpie Lake.

Leland Water is a pristine lake of around 6 acres, it has specimen Carp, Pike, Tench, Bream, Rudd, Roach and Perch.  This water is not fishable on the club card, but limited day tickets are available booked in advance.

Rex Atkin's Water is a smaller lake with all the above species but no Pike.  It is a moat shaped water, used for both matches and for pleasure fishing.  A prolific water that can be fished on the club card June 16th to March 14th inc.  March 15th to June 15th inclusive, Atkin's Water can be fished on a day ticket available on the bank.

Magpie Lake is again a moat shape lake which produces phenomenal catches of mainly Carp. A sheltered, intimate fishery that can be fished in all weathers.  For those big catches try a day at Magpie you won't regret it.  Day ticket only available on the bank.
The club has plans for another lake on our Waterbeach Road site, watch this space.

Membership Information


Photographs of any specimen fish caught on WAC waters can be sent to images@waterbeachac.co.uk for inclusion on our website.

Photos are best sent as jpg files at the highest resolution available on your camera. Try to keep any fish close to the ground and have a unhooking mat below the fish if possible in case it wriggles/jumps out of your hands. Do not use towels etc. to hold fish and try to keep your fingers out of shot as much is as possible.  Finally don't hold out the fish to the camera it just makes your fingers look like sausages.

"All anglers fishing Leland Water, Atkins Water and Magpie Lake are required to disinfect all nets, weigh slings and unhooking mats before & after fishing. Tanks are provided at each lake and clearly labelled for the purpose. Anglers failing to comply will be asked to leave and not return!"
