Cressacres Carp Syndicate is professionally run carp fishing syndicate located on a private estate at Croxley Hall Fisheries, near Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, in the Colne Valley.
Members of Cressacres Carp Syndicate enjoy exclusive carp fishing on Cressacres Lake, Longwater and Kingfisher Pool. Cressacres is a mature seven acre gravel pit that was dug over thirty five years ago; Longwater and Kingfisher Pool, both an acre in size were dug around the same time.
By 2007, the resident carp (including many of the famous “Croxley” commons), were already the dominant species and had grown on up to 30lbs, other strains of carp having been stocked as fingerlings in the 1980’s. Several hundred carp have also been stocked since 2007 making Cressacres, Longwater and Kingfisher Pool typical “runs” waters with multiple catches of carp from 8lbs to 30lbs+ possible during the day or night. During the winter months Cressacres can be a productive water both for carp and the occasional pike.
