Trout Fishing

We extend a warm welcome to all trout anglers. The range of fishing we offer ensures excellent sport for all abilities. Our still water fisheries are among the best in the West and vary in size from around 50 to over 900 acres! Our fisheries are include picturesque lakes with secluded bays and stretches to explore. We boast Rainbows, Browns and a large number of Blues of the highest quality. Traditional Fly fishing is the rule at our stocked fisheries, although, other methods can be used at our free wilderness trout waters.

We are working hard to encourage young people and newcomers to take up the sport. Under 12’s may fish for free when sharing their parents’ bag limit. Throughout the season we will be hosting open days where will be offering free fly fishing tuition for all.

Coronavirus Update

We have boats at most of our waters which provide an alternative to bank angling. These may be pre-booked and we advise calling in advance to check availability at each fishery.

Most of the waters benefit from facilities designed for disabled or wheelchair anglers, either by platforms or Wheelyboats. These boats must be booked at least 48 hours in advance.

A number of the fisheries have local clubs associated with the waters. These are a great way to meet fellow anglers, as well as participating in competitions and social events. We run four competitions during the season with two singles, one pairs and one team of four competition. More details of each of these can be found on the competitions page.

Anglers on all our waters must have a valid Environment Agency rod licence which are available from post offices or via the Environment Agency. The only exception may be when attending a bona fide course or a coaching session with a qualified coach – please check beforehand.

The South West Lakes Trust is the managing charity of  SW Lakes Fishing. The trust is a member of The Angling Trust and the Stillwater Trout Fisheries Association. In 2014 the South West Lakes Trust fisheries hosted the Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships, Scotland took gold and England won silver.
