New Platt Fisheries

Trout Fishing At Its Best

Allostock | Knutsford | Cheshire | WA16 9LY

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.

29/06/18 Well done Mr Jones

Mr Jones has visited on 23rd and 25th June and caught 8 trout in total, the biggest one coming in at 3 1/2 lbs. There is some great fishing at the moment!

The thirty seven acre lake has two islands and can be fished from either boat or bank with a number of fishing jetties being provided where the tree line comes close to the waters edge. 

The area surrounding the lake supports interesting and varied wildlife providing a natural source of feeding for the trout. The water is regularly stocked with hard fighting, full-finned rainbow trout which provide excellent sport.
