Dorchester on Thames,
OX10 7LP OX10 7LP
Situated in the heart of the Thames Valley, just south of Oxford approximately one mile from the delightful and historic village of Dorchester-on-Thames, Orchid Lakes has a long history and fine reputation for providing carp angling which is second to none. Last year 117 30s were landed along with hundreds of fish up to 30lbs. All 30lb carp are photographed night or day regardless of the time.
At 17.6 acres this delightful lake is surrounded by an abundance of mature trees, including many impressive weeping willows conveying a feeling of seclusion in many of the custom built swims. As one would expect on a specialist carp fishery, the swims have been purpose built to meet anglers' requirements.
Although the lake has over the years become well known for the quality of its general fishing it has recently come to National prominence for its reputation for producing very large carp.
There are between 25 and 30 different thirties with four of them recorded at over 37lbs, one of them weighing in at an impressive 41lb this year, backing this up, there are perhaps some two or three hundred carp up to 30lbs. Each year invariably see's one or two new thirtys on the bank.
Orchid lake probably offers one of the best chance of a thirty that you could possibly have on any day ticket water in the country. Along the way you can experience the pleasure of attending an extremely well run, secure and very attractive fishery.
Don't forget, as an added service to anglers, transport is made available to take you and your tackle to your chosen swim.
At just under 2 acres, the Club Lake holds an abundant supply of just about everything including numerous Cats, 7 of which are over 30lbs and 2 over 40lbs.
It is continually stocked with tench, bream and roach and with 40 pegs it is an ideal venue for match fishing.
Day, afternoon, evening or night matches can be tailored to suit your needs.
