Barnt Green Fishing Club
Barnt Green Fishing Club is separate to the sailing club. All fishing club enquiries should be made to the Fishing Club membership secretary by email to email@example.com
Barnt Green Fishing Club is situated close to the Lickey Hills on the edge of the South Birmingham boundary. It is a long established club formed in 1888. The club provides fly fishing in private gated waters, the object being to provide high quality trout fishing in attractive and peaceful surroundings. The fishing is managed by a committee drawn from the full membership and employs a full time keeper.
There are three trout waters. The largest is Lower Bittell Reservoir, a water of 23 acres with both bank and boat fishing. Four boats are provided free for the members. The second water is Mill Shrub, 4 acres in size with ample bank fishing and one boat provided. Both these waters are within a site designated as a site of special scientific interest (SSSI). The third water is a spring fed pool of one acre providing bank fishing for quality trout.
The Coarse anglers are amply catered for with two lakes available to them. The jewel in the crown, is the impressive Upper Bittell Reservoir where 88 acres and depths down to 26 feet, accommodate large Bream shoals with many fish over 8lb being taken. Vast numbers of Roach are coming through which is pleasing for the future. Large Pike to over 20lb provide excellent winter sport. And a small but growing number of Carp provide a great challenge to the dedicated Specimen angler.
The small, intimate one-acre Lower Arrow pool has plenty of Roach and Perch plus large bonus Tench, Bream and Carp.
