Stanwick Lakes

Located in Northamptonshire, the Complex consists of 6 mature lakes, including a  day ticket specimen carp lake with fish to 39lb, and a syndicate carp lake. Our aim is to cater for a variety of anglers, from pleasure to serious matchmen and specimen anglers, whether you want to fish for a few hours or all weekend. The day ticket Specimen Carp Lake is  Elsons, and back in the 80's, was run as the Mid Northants Carp Fishery, one of the premier carp waters in the country, and fished by the top Carp Anglers at the time.

Now, 20 years on, it has matured into a beautiful lake, surrounded by large trees. The lake is around six acres in size, with depths ranging from 6-9ft. Surrounded by reeds, the lake features several gravel bars, sunken and overhanging trees, and lily pads.


There are quite a few large carp in the lake, and at the time of writing, there are at least 6 known fish over 30lb, the biggest being just over 39lb, and many more over 20lb. There are a maximum of 12 anglers allowed on at any one time so booking is advisable.


The complex consists of 6 mature lakes and caters for a variety of anglers from pleasure to serious matchmen and specimen anglers, whether you want to fish for a few hours or all night.
