A private estate lake nestling at the foot of a steep, woodland slope next to Tarn Pond. As fishing is limited to only one bank, Warren is an ideal spot for members who enjoy secluded, hassle free angling in beautiful surroundings.

The lake contains a very respectable head of Carp which, because of the shallow water, are easy to locate and not too difficult to catch. This is not, however, just a Carp water. The obliging population of Tench and Roach make pleasure fishing on the Warren a delight.

This is a peaceful and secluded venue. There are plenty of small Carp to 20lb plus, Tench averaging 3lb, some Crucian Carp to 2lb with supporting Roach, Rudd, Perch, Pike and a few Eels.

Tackle and Tactics

Most anglers concentrate on the far bank margin, placing baits as near to the marginal tree canopy as possible and find the Carp very obliging!

The shallow water and deep silt pose interesting problems for the Carp angler and the Chod rig is recommended for the best presentation for bottom baits and, as the Carp show themselves frequently, a Pedigree Chum Mixer presented on the surface can provide excellent sport..

Bream, Tench and Crucians respond well to the standard pole or tip techniques and can provide hectic sport.
