Fishing information

The fishery offers peace, tranquillity and fantastic surroundings in which to fish. The aim has been to create a water where you can get away from the world have plenty of choice where to fish and catch some stunning English fish. There are no main roads, railway lines, flight paths, power lines or street lights to detract from the fishing, just peace and quiet. The only thing that may disturb you is the wealth of wildlife surrounding the reservoir.

The reservoir has been stocked with 450 fish of a variety of strains including AJS Scaley carp, Leaney descendants, Fishers pond fish and the existing Belvoir fish. The majority have been young fish with plenty of potential and growth rates have remained steady over the last few years. The water now contains in excess of 150 twenties, 100 over 25, up to 50 thirties and a dozen over 35lb.

There is a small lodge for use by the members, secure parking, toilet and boats are allowed to reach the more remote parts of the reservoir.
