News February 2013
Simon Healy who leases the Charvil lakes has left Atomic Tackle and now has his own company "G-Force" and thus the lakes are now known as "G-Force Charvil Complex". We understand that Simon intends to develop his own angling ideas and market them through G-Force.
We have been contacted by UK Power Networks asking us to remind all members about the dangers of fishing near powerlines. to this aim please find below 2 links, the first to their general safety webpage and the second to a specific page for anglers.
Remember, always look up before starting to fish
News, April 2012
G-Force have launched a new website just for Charvil Country Park, please take a look...
And please, if possible, support our country park sponser.
Charvil Angling Club was founded in 2011 to represent the interests of Charvil residents and manage access to the waters on Charvil Country Park.
The lakes and river within the country park are leased by Wokingham Borough Council to Atomic Tackle. One of the terms of lease is that local residents retain the right to fish the waters. Any Charvil residents wishing to fish on the country park must join CAC in order to access the day tickets provided by G Force.
We have 3 waters available to us
1) Canberra, this is the main lake (16 acres) and contains LARGE carp.
2) Orrell, this is the smaller lake (2.8 acres) and contains a mixture of coarse fish with carp upto 20lb
3) A stretch of the R Lodden (600m) running from the railway bridge upto the Tywford Rd. This contains chub / barbel / roach / perch etc.
Haupt Lake is so overgrown that it cannot be fished and is to be left as a wildlife area.
The Heronry has been designated a nature reserve and as such there is strictly no fishing.
