Specimen Carp Fishing

Revesby Estate fisheries lakes

The main fishing reservoir dates back to the mid 1800s. The 35 acre reservoir is our largest body of water and is home to our traditional Revesby original carp stocks, which have lived in the fishing reservoir for many years.

We are proud of our Revesby original carp, which are hard fighting, disease free and have a unique dark, heavily plated scale pattern. Due to years of care, our carp have strong growth rates to ensure the fishing reservoir is always well stocked with the healthiest possible fish.

For a number of years, we have preserved and built upon this unique strain of carp. Two ponds have been converted into spawning and growing-on ponds to help us achieve this goal. To compliment our in house breeding and growing on program, we also purchase carp from leading fish farms in the UK.

We transfer our carp into the main fishing reservoir when they are around 15lbs and have many carp that are above 30lbs. We aim to provide the perfect carp fishing experience in Lincolnshire. 

Coded gate

When becoming a Revesby fisheries member, you benefit from our coded gate entry for maximum site security.

Signing in

The signing in process ensures that management knows who’s on site at all times.

Otter fence/SP Gate

Due to a recent increase in the UK otter population, we have made the decision to protect our quality fish stocks with an electric otter fence.


The fishing reservoir has two maintained tracks giving 80% access. The tracks have been sympathetically built so as to not affect the fishing experience.

Car park

In total, the fishing reservoir has five designated car parks, meaning you never have to walk too far to your peg.


We have two maintained flushing toilets available for use.

Manager’s house

Management living on the site not only improves security, but also aids the fishery development.


If you prefer to fish from a platform, then you can. 40% of our swims have platforms.


An annual maintenance plan is put in place to ensure a quality fishing experience for members.
