Carp Fishing Holidays From


Nestled on the outskirts of St Leanords Forest, Horsham, Menards Carp Fishery has flourished into a very mature and stunning venue. Menards was born in the late 90’s. Constructed on a 10 acre plot , since then many changes have been made and the lake has been joined to the stock pond and enlarged considerably resulting in a very unique looking fishery packed with features. Carpy overhangs are in abundance as well as 4 islands, lily pads, bays, bars and plateaus with variable depths to 12 feet.

The setting is extremely tranquil and surrounded by mature oaks. The lake is well maintained and complimented by wood chipped paths and swims. There are good facilities on site with flushing toilets and a wet room.

We apply careful stock management at Menards and benefit from a variety of different strains. We now have a stock to be proud off, with one particular mirror that has surprised us all with steady weight gains since its introduction at 28 pounds. It best weight in 2011 was a lake record; 57.04lb. A large proportion of our fish where born here and the best of which are now reaching well in excess of 35 pounds. These young fish have complimented our original stock and in some cases surpassed them in weight. Every year we see more and more fish topping the 30 pound mark and particularly this year the fishing has been very prolific. With a large number of fish banked in excess of 30 pounds so far this season with braces not uncommon. We aim to continue in the same way for the future to see out the true potential.

Day and night tickets are available for members and by booking only, the fishery is open 365 days per year. Please see rules and fees for more information.
