Siblyback Lake

Trout Fishing at Siblyback Lake

This is a Troutmaster water.

Siblyback Lake, Liskeard, Cornwall PL14 6ER

This popular fly fishery on the edge of Bodmin Moor is regularly stocked with Rainbow Trout averaging between 1 and 2lb with lots of fish in the 3-6lb bracket. We also stock some double figure fish during the season with the largest having been just under 14lbs. We stock a large number of Blue trout too and they fight well above their weight. We have a large population of resident Brown trout too which are catch and release only. 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). There is also a petrol engine for hire but you may take your own electric outboard. A ‘catch and release' option is available (barbless hooks must be used). The trout come from Milemead Fish Farm and the quality and fight they give is second to none.

South West Lakes Trust holds the annual Snowbee Team Bank competition (open to teams of 4) at Siblyback every April - please see the competitions page for more details.

This is a £2000 BEST OF THE BEST WATER – see competitions page for more details
