Fontburn Update – Reopening

We’re really happy to let you know that Fontburn Reservoir will reopen to anglers and other visitors this Saturday, September 12.

We can’t wait to welcome you all back!

Our fishing lodge will open from 7.45am for permits, tackle and bait.

Please note that when entering the lodge, you MUST wear a mask or face covering, and we are currently accepting card payment only.

However, if you would like to enter the tagged fish sweep please remember to bring a £1 coin with you.

You can also now book and pay for your permit online, prior to your visit. Online permits must be purchased before midnight for the following day and will be limited to 80 for each day.

If you would like to fish on the same day, please call the lodge before travelling on 01669 621368 to check there are bank spaces available.

Fishing starts at 8am. In the interest of safety and fairness to your fellow anglers do not go earlier or set up on the bank until instructed to do so by our Ranger team.
