Exclusive Trout fishing - 7am to closing (trout fishing may be temporarily be suspended if the public are rowing but may continue as soon as they have stopped).

*** Our trout lake is 'Any Method' fishing now, this means you may fish with fly rods, spinners or float rods.

Many lovely rainbows and brownies to catch –  biggest rainbow trout caught so far - 11 +Lbs but they are in there bigger than that.

Be warned! Revise your game fish playing techniques. These fish will fight and they have water up to 30 feet deep to do it in!

We want everyone to catch their limit. If you have a good day, then so do we. Always feel free to ask our fisheries manager for hints and tips and for what fly is best for the water at the time. Try to apply the information because the wrong fly just scares them away!

For fly fishing experts, we recommend fishing with dry flies as this will let you enjoy a longer day fishing within the limit paid for.
