Fishing Oxonhoath

Fishing Oxonhoath

On this page we give some pointers on how, when and where to catch the fish. Much depends on the time of the year, weather, equipment being used and finally and perhaps most importantly, your own ability. Much of the information given has been gleaned from the Bailiffs, who themselves regularly fish the various venues. For the protection of our waters against poaching, we have not identified precisely each venues location.

Our large estate lake holds thousands of small carp up to 12lbs. An ideal venue for younger members who want to catch lots of fish. This was once an ice skating lake for the main house and is set on a side of a hill.

Parking: see Rule book.

Amazing bags of medium sized Carp, so keen you hardly need to bait the hook, ideal spot for teaching youngsters and novices.
