Tithe Barn - Titchfield - PO15 5RD
Water Information & Updates
This 3 lake complex is the Club’s latest purchase, and all 3 lakes offer quality fishing for all anglers, in very picturesque surroundings.

  • Top Lake: This lake is managed as a specimen Carp lake holding Mirror Carp and Common Carp to 30lb, there are only a limited number of swims on the lake, two being doubles so a strict 24hr limit is enforced to give all anglers a chance to fish. The top lake is currently accessed by foot from the members car park as per the map but this is subject to change. Please be aware that construction work is continuing outside the boundary of the lake but may also impact on the lake as they install drainage channels and pipes. Please be mindful if they are working near the lake and we apologise for any inconvenience that is caused.
  • Middle Lake: This lake is managed as a mixed fishery and offers great fishing for Large Carp, Tench, Barbel and lots of Silver and decent Perch.
  • Bottom Lake: This lake has a large head of Small Carp, Bream, Crucians and Silver Fish and is managed to give the angler lots of bites and action.
