Trout Fishing at Drift Reservoir
Drift Reservoir, Penzance, Cornwall TR19 6AB
Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Drift is a 65 acre clear water trout fishery situated in a large valley 2 miles west of Penzance, 200 metres from the main A30 to Lands End. Depths vary greatly around the reservoir, a deep area close to the dam and a shallow wooded area at the opposite end to the dam. We stock Rainbows to 5lbs and a good scattering of Blues throughout the season. Drift has an incredible head of natural Browns with as many as 50 being caught in a single day before. They average around 9-10 inch in size.
There is a boat and engine for hire on site and float tubing and kayak fishing is also an option although we don’t provide the equipment. We hold the SNOWBEE Cornish Open Float Tube competition here in May.
