Croxley Hall Fishery is located on a private estate in the heart of the Colne Valley near Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire. This exclusive fishery made up of numerous lakes first opened its gates in the early eighties and was run as a successful Trout fishery for many years. In the mid-nineties due to the increasing demand for quality carp fishing the main eight-acre lake was restocked with around two hundred common carp sourced from an old farm pond in Northamptonshire dating back to the days of the Monks.
These fish grew quickly in the rich weedy waters at Croxley Hall, and it became apparent that the fish now known as the Croxley commons were a very unique strain of carp. Over the years, regular captures of forty-pound fish became a normal occurrence with some lucky anglers catching fish to almost sixty pounds. In 2018 facilities were put in place on the estate to breed from these magnificent fish ensuring the future of the Croxley Hall commons.
There are currently five carp lakes with two different carp syndicates and a small exclusive Trout Syndicate that fish two other lakes on the estate.
Croxley Hall Fisheries has excellent facilities for all syndicate members including, toilets, running water, and electricity. Members are able to see "who is fishing" in real-time on any of the lakes from the comfort of their home thanks to our unique login/logout system incorporated into the member's area of this website. This also ensures catch reports are kept up to date when members leave the fishery. Members are also encouraged to upload pictures of their captures and read the latest member's news to keep up to date with events at the fishery.
All syndicate members have the use of two secure car parks situated near the lakes behind locked gates.
The lakes are maintained by fishery staff, with mown grass banks and swims for the comfort of members. There is no requirement for members to attend any work parties throughout the year.
