Our superb trout fishing venue provides the discerning fly fisherman with the opportunity to fish in tranquil surroundings from either boat or bank. Membership includes full use of the clubs facilities including unlimited use of the clubs boats and life jackets. Members can use our private parking next to the fishing lodge, which is located close to the lake. Our members are friendly, helpful and happy to share any tips on how to increase your catch rate.
Over the last five years the average catch rate per member works out at just under two fish per visit. While our members enjoy trout fishing on a catch and release basis they can take three fish per visit. Due to catch and release fishing, statistics show that on average 20% of stocked trout are taken each year. Regular stocking coupled with more catch and release fishing ensures that here are plenty of fish to be caught. You can view historical catch returns here and the 2015 years figures here.
Our membership is run on a non-commercial basis, and is limited to sixty members. The fishery therefore remains unspoilt and a unique and pleasurable place to fish.
