Bank Fishing - Half Day Rate


Try your hand at fly fishing from one our banks. With a regularly stocked lake of rainbow trout and native brown trout, you are in for a catch!

Permitted methods are fly-fishing and ledgered worm from the bank fishing areas and fly-fishing only from our new electric boats which can be hired.

Please ensure you have selected the Add On for your fishing permit which is additional to the fishing boat hire. Permits include:

  1. Adult Half Day @ £20.00: Maximum bag limit of two fish.

  1. Youth (16 Years and Under) Half Day @ £10.00: Maximum bag limit of one fish.

  1. Concessionary Half Day @ £15.00: Maximum bag limit of two fish.

Upon arrival, please sign in at our Visitor Centre Reception or Activity Centre Reception. Please ensure all consent forms and permits have been signed before your arrival. You will be advised to collect a return slip when you sign in as this feedback helps with our stocking.

Following your bag catch, you are welcome to continue fishing through catch and release using barbless hooks only. Permits are only permitted if you hold a valid NRW Rod Licence which you must show proof of when signing in.

Please be advised dogs are not permitted in or on the lake under any circumstances. Dogs must always remain on a lead when on site.
