Bishops Bowl Fishery
Situated in a lovely rural setting just outside of the villages of Bishops Itchington and Harbury on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire borders. The lakes are set in a former 90 acre limestone quarry which has been allowed to flood naturally. The quarry work many years ago has created an attractive stone faced bowl, which has two areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific interest, whilst the whole site is recorded as a Site of Interest for Nature and Conservation.
The margins of this 5.6 acre lake are lined with Norfolk Rush, providing habitats for a variety of wildlife. This lake has naturally developed, being bordered to the east by a limestone cliff face, with depths varying from 4 to 34ft, and shelves and ledges throughout providing the most interesting of fishing. The lake is stocked with approximately 500 mirror and common carp between 10 and 30lbs. This is the “runs” water. Pike in excess of 20lbs can be caught between September and March. The lake also contains large quantities of Bream, Tench, Roach, Rudd and Perch.
A relatively small pond with 6 pegs enhanced by bullrushes and small islands, this is an ideal beginners pleasure pool where bites are almost certain. Contains small Carp, Skimmer Bream, Roach, Tench and Rudd.
A 1 acre lake with 16 pegs incorporating the pond previously known as the dinosaur dip, this lake has a wide variety of features throughout with depths from 2-7ft. It has a large stock of Carp from 4oz to 10lb plus, Bream to 4lbs, Crucians to 2.5lbs, numerous Tench to 4lbs, Roach, plus Rudd and Perch.

WHITE BISHOP LAKE
A 1.5 acre, 26 peg pleasure and match lake with depths 2-12ft, with the margins producing good results. This lake is consistent throughout the year, providing good catches of silver fish during the winter months.
A 24 acre lake sheltered by cliffs, some of which are Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Flora and fauna abound, but the expanse of the water is broken by a number of islands, channels and bays. Depths vary from 2-35ft, and it is relatively untouched as it has not been fished since the early 1980’s when it was a trout water.
Day ticket waters, night fishing available.
