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. The lake is up to 40-foot (12 m) deep at the dam end, shelving off to around 15 feet (4.6 m) at the inlet end.
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 due to the location we are not disabled friendly. If you have any mobility issues we do not recommend membership.
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 44lb 4oz. 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
Tardebigge Anglers is run by well known big fish angler and fishing tutor Russ Guise. Russ has been fishing the reservoir from an early age and pretty much grew up at Tardebigge Reservoir. Russ is well known for his angling skills and his exceptional watercraft and his results speak for themselves.
Along with Russ are our fantastic team of bailiffs without whom we would not be able to have such a wonderful location. Each bailiff is passionate about the lake and are always ready to help. They work tirelessly to maintain our very high standards. Head bailiff is Simon Woodall along with Luke Stevens, James Ball, Stuart Glover, Ed Cameron and Jake Norris.
The Worcester to Birmingham canal runs alongside the reservoir, with the famous Tardebigge Locks. To fish the canal you will need a Birmingham Anglers Association membership permit. The Birmingham Anglers permit will allow you to fish miles of our beautiful canal network and rivers and is great value for money. Expect to catch carp, bream, roach, rudd, perch and pike.
Please note a B.A.A permit does not allow you to fish the reservoir!
Don't be surprised to spot some special guests on the bank!
Tardebigge Reservoir is open to the public to visit all year round. Access to the full reservoir is strictly for members only but you are welcome to walk up to the dam wall and enjoy the stunning view.
If you are planning on visiting then please park in the lay-by on the left hand side on Grimley Lane. Do not park in front of the gates.

On the 5th September 2020 we lost a fishing legend, Oli Guise. Oli loved The Res. He spent 40 years fishing it and was a wealth of knowledge. Many a day you would see him walking up to The Res with his dog and then to sit on his favourite bench with a flask of tea. He was a quiet, softly spoken man but when he talked you listened. He will be sadly missed by every member of Tardebigge Anglers but especially his son Russ Guise, the syndicate owner.
