Barnt Green Fishing Club
Formed in 1888 Barnt Green Fishing Club controls the fishing on 3 waters which are stocked with trout and are located in rural north Worcestershire. We are one of the premier fishing clubs within the West Midlands.
Lower Bittell Reservoir and Mill Shrub Pool cover23 and 4 acres respectively with additional small water, Upper Arrow, which is particularly good in the winter as it is spring fed. All waters being stocked with rainbow and other verities of trout of between 2 and 10lbs throughout the year. The Club has two other waters, Upper Bittell reservoir and Lower Arrow which are both mixed coarse fisheries including a head of carp, pike and trench.
The club has its headquarters at Upper Bittell reservoir and share a clubhouse house function, including bar, with the Sailing Club. Included within the membership package there are boats available to fish from on the larger waters. Sonic probes are installed on both of the large trout waters to disperse any water borne algae, promoting oxygenation and improved water clarity.
Conservation & Stewardship
The site is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The Estate forms the largest area of open water in Worcestershire and represents one of the most important sites in the West Midlands for the passage of waders as well as waterfowl. Water quality and bio-diversity is monitored throughout the year.
The object of the club is to provide all year round quality recreational fishing in a quiet, tranquil environment. No day tickets are available but members may invite guests to fish.
The club membership is limited by is constitution when formed to 56 voting members, with the addition of Associate and Associate Coarse members. The club also administers membership of the Friends of Bittell, a group interested in the wildlife and preservation of the estate from development within the catchment.
