A Bit About Us

Quality Specimen
Carp Fishing

Developed for experienced and discerning anglers who want seclusion, privacy and quality specimen carp fishing on a totally private site in the Cotswold Water Park, Wildmoor Waters offers fishing from a new Studio apartment and three luxury waterside lodges which are ideal for individuals, couples or families.

Over recent years Wildmoor has built a reputation as one of the country's top 'big carp' venues offering angling for specimen commons and mirrors to over 40lbs and leathers to over 30lbs. The biggest fish to come out so far and the current lake record is a 42lb mirror caught by Matt during a Christmas and New Year 2018 break, whilst staying in Yew Tree lodge.

The quality of the carp fishing can be judged by the fact that there are over 550 fish at Wildmoor many of which are over 15lbs with 250 being over 20lbs and between 25 and 35 over 30lbs.

In addition, it is thought there are at least two other 40-plus fish including 'The Warrior' and 'Elma' which were both caught two years ago at 36lbs and are expected to have put on more than 4lbs since then. The majority of the fish currently being caught are coming in at over 20lbs.

Regularly featured in many of the leading specialist carp magazines, Wildmoor Waters opened for angling over 15 years ago and was developed in association with leading fishery biologist Dr Bruno Broughton. Dr Broughton's association with the fishery also means that the lake has been sympathetically developed to provide the maximum benefit to both the fish and anglers.

Since its initial stocking, many of the fish have more than doubled in weight and are now providing exciting sport for anglers. Fancy giving it a try?  Check our latest availabilty now!

Pound for Pound
English Carp

We are proud to boast when it comes to the stocking and quality of the Carp here at Wildmoor Waters. Year over year our specimen lake has consistantly produced good weights, with 2018 being no exception. With the recent warm weather, our resident carp are really starting to spring into life now, and the anglers in our lodges have been reporting some exceptional catches. 

A shout to Didier Simons who joined us from Belgium recently, staying in Yew Tree lodge. Didier had the privilidge of landing some beautiful Wildmoor Carp up to 36lb, check out some of the pics from Didiers haul.
