Fishing with Waterside Parks is the perfect way to enjoy a great sport, whether you like fly fishing, bank fishing, coarse fishing or wild brown trout fishing.

With so many different locations to choose from, and styles of fishing, every experience will feel new and exciting.

The fishing we offer across our parks and reservoirs is aimed at all abilities. We can teach you everything from setting up your rod to casting off, or we can just direct you to the best spots and leave you to enjoy the wonderful outdoors and to practice your skill. Our rangers are always happy to have a chat and give any tips or advice to help you have the best chance of catching one of the many thousands of fish stocked across our reservoirs. And now you can bring the family! Either get them involved or learn more of what they can do at Derwent while you enjoy your days fishing.
