The Sitch is a naturally formed breath taking 26 acre estate lake, surrounded by mature dense woodland that boasts a spectacular variety of trees, and is home to a diverse range of wildlife.
The fishery has 20 purpose built pegs, some are situated in the woodland and others on purpose built platforms set out on the lakeside amongst the reed and sedges.
The lake is stocked with 450 young monument strain carp. These fish range from 12lbs-30lbs and are growing at a healthy rate, with the number of 20’s increasing each month! There are also a number of 30lbs fish with the lake record currently standing at 38lbs +. On top of the current stock we also adopt an on going year on year stocking policy with a view to improving on the high end fish we have exceeding 30lbs.
The future looks promising for the Sitch as the fish continue to grow. With 450 fish multiple catches are a common place, these fish really respond to heavy baiting tactics and with depth’s not exceeding 4ft you are never too far away from your target.
The Sitch is run as a syndicate from June to March and is a great way to start your fishing career on an RH Fisheries syndicate water. Joining the Sitch couldn’t be simpler, just pick up the phone and contact Alex Lister on 01952 463 141.
Through the months of April and May we operate an open access policy, we sell the lake exclusively from Sat- Sat for groups of up to 12 anglers. With 26 acres of water to target and 20 well spaced swims, there loads of room (we will consider groups of 6 for half the fishery)
Call Alex on 01952-463141 for more details.
This swim is open for bookings 12 months of the year! It is a superb giant board swim, purpose built for 2 anglers to enjoy, offering plenty of room for two bivvies, either side of a picnic table, making the swim very comfortable. There is a Unhooking mat/ cradle on the swim, so you only need your landing net and weigh sling.( rod pods or stage stands are required)
We sell the swim on a weekly basis only, from sat - sat for two anglers
The Holiday Swim commands a large area looking down the stunning 26 acre fishery.
Also behind the swim there is a very smart echo toilet.

Thought you might like to take a look at our new fish that were feeding up to be put in our lakes later in the year. You can see our fish munching on some sweet corn that I hand fed into the margins. Enjoy chaps.
What a great last few weeks we have had on all our waters. The low pressure and windy conditions have got the carp feeding and we have seen some great catches. Luke Edwards with 7 fish over two sessions at the Monument, with fish to 36lb. Nick Davies with a stunning brace from Acton lower with Bill at 52.06 and the Dave Moore fish at 44.04. The Avenue finished with a great session of 10 fish including one of the 40 commons.
As all the members know we are now closed until June. The fish are feeding well and with all this rain we are having the waters are looking back to there best. The water level at Weston is now also back to normal and overflowing. I will keep you all informed of the official opening of each of the waters.
