Clattercote is one of our most popular match venues and is usually busy with anglers at the weekends. It is quieter mid-week with plenty of space for pleasure anglers, but always check the notice board on arrival for latest information.

There is a portable toilet on site.

Fish stocks

Carp - range in size from 3 or 4lbs right up to 30lbs. They can be caught on a variety of methods and in the evening patrol very close to the water’s edge.

Bream - can be caught on the bottom, particularly when the weather is cloudy.

Tench - feed best from April through to October.

Roach - not often fished for. The venue record is 2lbs 10oz, a fish of a lifetime for a serious roach angler.

Pike -  In the winter months Clattercote is a popular venue with pike anglers and has produced fish to 26lbs.
