Welcome to Tardebigge Anglers

About Us

Our Fishery

Tardebigge Reservoir was established in 1827. The 25 acre feeder reservoir supplies water to the Worcester to Birmingham canal and is part of the world famous Tardebigge Locks. 


This hidden gem of a lake is set in rural Worcestershire, near Tardebigge Village. It is stocked with genuine British Old School carp. This fishery is totally unique and very much loved by it's members. Unfortunately it is not disabled accessible.

Fish Stocks

The lake was drained in 2002 and was fully restocked with genuine specimen British Old School Carp. We stocked over 200 carp with weights now being caught up to 40lbs. A good majority of our 30lb fish are all Commons. To this day we still have unknown fish of sizeable weights caught. This lake is not a runs water and takes true skill to land these stunning fish. 


Along with the carp we also have plenty of double figure Pike! We have a special Winter Ticket for those who wish to target predators only. 


Don't forget to take your float rod with you as a fun day can be had bagging up on silver fish. We have some very sizeable roach that any match angler would love to catch. Bring a pint of maggots and enjoy a few hours having some fun with a float!
