Any method fishing for rainbow trout and coarse fishing for roach
Fontburn offers top class trout fishing for fly and any method anglers, alongside holding good stocks of pristine roach for coarse anglers. Fontburn is suitable for disabled anglers with a disabled platform on the north shore.
For those anglers who like to wander, the lightly fished middle and western end of the north and south shore can provide some excellent sport when the trout are well spread.
All fish stocked are from our own onsite fish farm, and some of those stocked are tagged fish with cash prizes available. You can also loose feed and ground bait around the reservoir.
On-site we have an excellent lodge shop stocked with everything you need for a days fishing including rods, reels, tackle, accessories, clothing, worms, bait, ice creams and refreshments including hot and cold drinks.
