Carp & Coarse Fishery
Upper Farm Fishery is a well established, tranquil, private 1 acre lake situated in the beautiful South Oxfordshire countryside between Chinnor (Oxfordshire) and Princes Risborough (Buckinghamshire). With 20 swims/pegs it is the perfect venue for pleasure anglers who are looking for a friendly and peaceful location in which to catch a wide variety of carp and coarse fish. Facilities include an onsite tackle shop, large car park and toilet.
Our 1 acre lake is well stocked with a wide variety of coarse fish. It has been estimated by specialist fishery consultant Andrew Ellis from AE Fisheries, that we have in excess of 2000+ lbs of fish stock.
We’ve had a lot of reports of snapped 12lb and 15lb lines. Is there something bigger than 20lbs in the lake?
We think so and the first person to land a 20lb plus fish, call us so that we can weigh and photograph it will pocket themselves £150.
The Lake at Upper Farm Fishery
Upper Farm Fishery is a 1 acre mixed carp and coarse fishery split into 2 ponds, which are connected via a narrow waterway allowing the fish to move freely between the 2 ponds. The fishery is naturally spring fed all year round, keeping water at consistent levels even in the height of summer, with drainage to remove excess water and prevent the risk of flooding.
Graham’s Pond (Pegs 1 to 11) is approximately 0.6 acres and is up to 5 feet deep and has 11 swims/pegs, of which 4 are doubles and can hold 2 people (ideal for parents with young children or disabled guests who require wheelchair access).
Tony’s Pond (Pegs 12 to 20) is approximately 0.4 acres and is up to 6 feet deep and has 9 swims/pegs. The swims on Tony’s Lake all have step based access and are therefore not recommended for guests with disabilities, although we do allow anglers to fish from the bank on Tony’s Lake.
The lake is man made with Grahams’s Pond dug out in 1980 and Tony’s Pond being established around 1983. The lake was originally stocked by the Environment Agency in the early 80’s.
Upper Farm Fishery is beautifully maintained, well established, peaceful and well stocked with a variety of carp and coarse fish.
Both ponds have aerators to maintain oxygen levels during the summer and to prevent the water from freezing during the winter. The whole lake is protected by a low level electrified mink and otter fence. There is also free fast WiFi covering both ponds, plus a large car park with parking for 20 vehicles, a toilet with hot and cold running water and an onsite tackle and camping shop.
Graham’s Pond: Pegs 1, 2, 8 and 9 are all double pegs.
Tony’s Pond: We allow fishing from the bank on Tony’s Lake.
