Trout Fishing at Siblyback Lake

This is a Troutmaster water.

This popular fly fishery on the edge of Bodmin Moor is regularly stocked with Rainbow Trout averaging between 1 and 2lb with some fish up to 7lb. There are three angling boats and booking is essential to guarantee availability. There is also a wheelyboat for disabled anglers (which should be booked 48 hours in advance). ‘Catch and release' option is available (barbless hooks must be used). The trout will come from a new supplier in 2016 - Milemead Fish Farm. There trout are second to none for quality and we will be stocking a good number of Blue trout and fish to 7lb.
There is also a petrol engine for hire but you may take your own electric outboard.
