A beautiful, reed-lined lake on the banks of the river Windrush. Steeped in Oxfordshire carp-fishing history. With an amazing stock of classic Oxfordshire carp the lake offers fantastic fishing with a vibrant syndicate.
Stanton Harcourt opened in the summer of 2015.The venue boasts almost a dozen stunning carp over the 30lb barrier with the best couple going to 37lb+ at the right time of year. Truth be told this venue is so much more than pounds and ounces. The carp are old and a wide array of mirrors: dumpy mirrors, liners and scaly ones, with some chunky commons to boot! In the winter of 2016/17 we added a handful of handpicked fish to compliment the existing stock and ensure a bright future for the lake.
The friendly syndicate ensures a vibrant social scene around the lake with no shortage of tea and biscuits consumed! Although not what you’d classify as a classic winter water the lake does have fantastic winter form. With gin-clear water , depths varying from 4-12ft, big reed beds, margin features and gravel humps along with inviting silt gullies and all the swims commanding good amount of water. The lake has something for everyone.
