Clattercote Reservoir, Oxfordshire

Clattercote is in our opinion one of the countries top carp fisheries. Anglers come from miles around to enjoy the superb fishing and ample wildlife. Unlike Boddington, Clattercote is used solely for fishing and has staging built right the way around it so is easily accessible for anglers with trollies or wheelchairs. Again this is a very popular venue for matches, so check for availability. Match pegs/bookings can be found on the notice board at Clattercote itself or through tackle shops or bailiffs. A real must fish!


This again is mainly a Carp water but with plenty of other large species available. In summer match weights can be as much as 240lbs! Carp to 30lbs, Tench to 8lbs, Bream, Roach to 2lbs, Chub
