Whitehouse Farm

This well established lake is situated next to Tadley Market containing a good head of decent sized carp and bream, along with some tench, roach and perch.

The Easter Festival 2022 here was another big weight competition, with the top bags not coming from Keith's record breaking swim. On Good Friday the top weight was 192lb 1oz by Rob Guppy, with good backup weights of 63lb 13oz by Mike Allen and 57lb 2oz from FtF Andy, with the lowest weight being 13lb 5oz. On Day 2 (Easter Monday) there was a slightly lower top weight of 158lb 8oz by Kevin Holmes, followed by Darren Wright on 84lb, Gary Herman on 71lb 9oz, Paul Cripps on 65lb 10oz and Simon Couling on 63lb 10oz, with the lowest weight being 21lb 15oz, suggesting that the fish have started to spread out a bit.

The code to open the padlock onto the island is the same as the code you use for the main gate onto the lake as notified in your permit. Please make sure you lock the island gate when leaving after fishing.

All cars are to be parked either in the car park inside the gate, or in the main car park which is also used for the market on Sundays.

Soke Road

This venue consists of three small interconnected lakes holding a good head of mixed fish of all sizes.

The Prospect match here on March 27th produced some unusually low weights, with Joe Darby leading the way putting 25lb on the scales, ahead of Roy Beales on 18lb and Mark Shepard on 14lb.

On leaving the car park Lake 1 is on your right and is slightly deeper than the others. This is the one to try if you are looking for bream and skimmers. Lake 1 however does also hold many carp into double figures. Lake 2 is on your left when leaving the car park, with Lake 3 further along after Lake 2. On Lakes 2 and 3 the target is primarily carp, although there are also bream, roach and perch to be caught.

All cars at Soke Road must be parked in the car parking area and never driven beyond the bottom of the slope.

Barlows Lakes

New Barlows is the lake situated in front of the Mobile Home park, and is significantly deeper than our other waters, so please take care. New Barlows contains a good head of mixed fish, with double figure carp, big bream and rapidly growing barbel as the main targets, although there are also chub, skimmers, roach, perch and ide present.

New Barlows is not fishing very well at present, with the Prospect match here on April 3rd only producing a top weight of 17lb 8oz for Roy Beales, closely followed by Mick Palk on 17lb and Stuart on 14lb 12oz. Some reports are now coming in of more fish being caught by pleasure anglers.

Old Barlows is a "Mr Crabtree" lake with beautiful lily beds providing attractive features in the Summer, and swims that are significantly shallower than the New lake. Whilst it also produces plenty of fish, it can sometimes switch off when there are a lot of anglers on the bank, so probably more suited to pleasure sessions than match fishing. Two thousand small F1s were put into the lake in Spring of 2021, which resulted in more bites for most anglers this Summer.

On April 7th pleasure anglers on this lake caught mixed bags of tench, carp and bream, including some quite big fish.



Old Barlows 2021 Please note that the disabled swims in front of the car park may be reserved from time to time, so please keep an eye out for the signs.

The barbeque area by the car park is available for all members to use, but please make sure to leave it clean and tidy after use.

Please remember that any unauthorised movement of fish to, from, or between our lakes will result in a lifetime ban from the club.
