UPDATE 30 AUG 2022 – **UPDATE** the area above Millshields to the nature reserve is now closed due to condition’s **
Water levels at Derwent Reservoir have dropped exposing large areas of dangerous soft ground making the banks on the south shore unsafe for fishing.
Your safety and comfort is our primary concern and we are sorry to inform you that we have taken the decision to close that section for fishing until further notice.
However, we are pleased to confirm that our other reservoirs remain open for fishing.
Kielder Water – Full access
Derwent Reservoir – North shore and dam wall only
Hury – Reservoir – Full access
Grassholme Reservoir – Full access
Fontburn – North and south shore open, no fishing from the dam wall.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the early closure of the south shore and look forward to welcoming you at our other reservoirs for some great late season sport.
The site remains open for day visitors and we look forward to seeing you soon. During this time we would ask you to remain on the designated multi user tracks and to keep away from the shoreline.
In the meantime, if water levels rise sufficiently we will re-open the south shore for fishing.
