Beckerings Reservoir - Steppingley, Beds
Beckerings Park Farm Reservoir is a 5 Acre irrigation reservoir and has been fished by Luton AC members since 1987 with almost the entire stock of fish being introduced by the Club since that time.
At a glance the Club records will show the excellent fishing that Beckerings Reservoir can provide with Carp to 35lb, Bream to 9lb,Tench over 8lb, Rudd to over 3lb, Roach approaching 3lb and Pike to Mid-Twenties. We have also recently (December 2018) stocked Stillwater Chub, Barbel and Ide which are already providing good sport to members float fishing.
There are also a number of large catfish in the lake one of which is now around 65lb and these make regular appearances in our catch reports.
2022 UPDATE: We now have Otter Fencing around the reservoir to protect it from predation.
Fishing is available from the 27 platforms and the majority of these platforms are 8' x 6' and there are a few larger ones. The Fishery is open all year.
The water levels in the reservoir do fluctuate significantly during the summer due to the irrigation pumping that takes place, the fluctuations depend on the weather. In 1998 the level fell by 5 feet accounting for 6 Million gallons of the 24 million gallon capacity. When water levels are low it is possible to fish on the dried out lake bed in front of the platforms.The reservoir fishes very well throughout the year regardless of the water levels.
