Upham Farm is situated in Farringdon near Exeter and offers excellent Carp & Tench fishing and has built up a great reputation for anglers of all abilities whether you are a beginner or a more advanced angler. We have 7 lakes in total, each one offering different fishing but all located in a quiet tranquil location.
Pond 1 is stocked with common and mirror Carp to 15 lbs. Ornamental ghost and Koi Carp have recently been introduced. This pond is for the angler who likes a challenge.
Pond 2 is well stocked with Carp and Tench, mostly under 3lbs with a few larger Carp to around 12 lbs. This pond is very good sporting and beginners pond. Catches over 100 lbs are frequent in the summer months.
Pond 3 is stocked with Carp to around 8lbs and Tench to 6 lbs. The overhanging bushes at the lower end of this pond provide shade, and fish can often be tempted here in the Summer months.
Pond 4 is our old Specimen pond and it still has some great fish, including many doubles and a couple of twenties. The tench go to 7 lbs. The margins tend to be very productive.
Pond 5 is a good mixed pond, quite deep - 10 feet in places, and contains our best tench weighing in at 8 lbs 8 oz. Carp go up to around 16 lbs and bream to 2lb.
Pond 6 is well stocked with many smaller Carp and Tench, mostly under 2-3lbs, with some larger ones to about 11 lbs. It is an ideal sporting or beginners pond. Matches are sometimes held on this pond.
New Specimen Pond 7 opened in the Spring of 2009. This is much larger than any of the existing ponds at Upham Farm, and has been stocked with large specimen Carp. It has a long central island and numerous underwater shelves with depths varying between 5 feet and 14 feet. At the time of writing (February 2013) the largest Carp is a 32lb 4oz common. The fish are growing so well here that we hope some of the other large twenties will grow into 30s soon so watch this space!
