The finest fly fishing for trout in Cheshire, on a stunning lake near Goostrey. There is ample private parking next to the fishing lodge, which is located close to the lake. Our members enjoy still water fly fishing 365 days of the year with an average hourly catch rate of 1.24 trout in May 2018. We ask all our members to renew their membership promptly as not doing so could result in a new member taking their place.

For nearly twenty years our members have enjoyed fly fishing at one of the most beautiful trout venues in Cheshire, located in quiet rural countryside just off the A50 close to the village of Goostrey.

Set in secluded woodland and surrounded with an abundance of plant and bird-life, our lake provides some of the most rewarding fishing to the discerning fly fisherman.

Catch Rates

In 2019 the catch rates were excellent, with March 2019 working at just under 2 trout per hour. 

This June, despite lockdown and several weeks of closed fishing with a slow take up on reopening, we still managed a catch rate of 40 fish caught. 

Please see our Catch Reports page for more information. 

While our members enjoy trout fishing on a catch and release basis they can take three fish per visit. Regular stocking coupled with more catch and release fishing ensures that here are plenty of fish to be caught. 

Rules

Like any fishing club, we have basic rules to ensure members know what can and can’t be done. Our rules are simple and designed to make fishing enjoyable for all concerned.
