Both the weekend and midweek waiting lists are currently open
A mature gravel pit on the banks of the River Thames, just to the south of Abingdon, Oxfordshire.
Midweek tickets available
Lake record 35lb
Phil’s lake opened under the Embryo Portfolio in the spring of 2017. The previous controlling angling club had suffered high levels of predation and couldn’t afford to restock or fence the lake so they kindly offered Embryo the lease. Before opening we fully fenced and re-stocked the lake to ensure it had a bright future.
With over 250 fish stocked in late 2016 between 14lb-29lb, these fish are a variety of stunning mirrors and commons. The growth rates have been nothing short of exceptional with many of the fish showing in excess of 4lb growth a year. A small head of original carp remained to 31lb and with the supplementary feed coupled with anglers bait, these have also been growing nicely. Phil’s lake is also famed for its tench with many caught in the spring to over 11lb.
With just 11 swims on the lake, each swim commands a serious amount of water ensuring you’ve always got options! Phil’s can get weedy in the summer but there’s plenty of clear spots along with various bars and humps to be found around the venue.
With hard standing car park and on site toilet facilities, the lake offers the necessities needed.
Currently both the midweek and weekend rota’s are fully subscribed. Check below to see if there’s places available on the waiting lists.
