Full of fighting fit, unique coloured trout, these 100% natives have descended from the original upland brownies which lived in the streams before the dams were built. Lightning quick and vert hard fighting, these fish are a joy to catch.
Surrounded by the fantastic scenery of the North Pennine grouse moors, there are few more tranquil and relaxing ways to spend a day’s fishing than roaming the banks of these waters, and even fewer places where you can catch truly wild browns. A focused day fishing in the great outdoors is akin to mediation – an activity linked to decreased anxiety and lowered blood pressure.

It is always a good idea to keep on the move.
From Barnard Castle follow the B6277 to Romaldkirk and then follow the Balderhead road via Hunderthwaite.

The car park is on the north east side of the reservoir.
