Waters Avaliable To Reading Fishing Club Members:
Tapperns Lake - Theale
A quiet, peaceful, platformed lake with two wider disabled platforms, with vehicular access on payment of a £5.00 deposit. Tapperns is stocked with all species, best Carp 29.5lb, and best Perch 4lb 6oz.
Osier Lake - Theale
A much bigger lake next to Tapperns that provides a challenge. Very weedy in the summer months, but in our first year has provided carp to 22.5lb, a male Tench of 8lb 12oz and Pike to 26lb 8oz. There is unknown potential for other species.
Child Beale Complex - The Lake
This lake has produced Carp to 35+lb this season, Pike to 30lb, Bream to 12lb, large Tench and all other species.
Three large Bream shoals are known to inhabit this stretch and on the right day an angler could catch in excess of 100lb. Large Carp, Pike, Perch, Chub and Roach are also caught on this stretch. This stretch of river is in one of the most beautiful settings with Hartslock Wood opposite and conjures up thoughts of Wind in the Willows.
Tapperns and Osier benefit from a gated and fenced car park and complex.
Child Beale offers fun for non-fishing family members to visit the animal and bird park where café and toilet facilities are also available.
