Fishing Types

Any Method

Fly fishing only for rainbow trout

**Due to the temporary closure of Grassholme Reservoir from Friday 23 July, Hury will be open for any method angling from Saturday 24 July, until the extended season of 30 November 2021.**

Hury is our fly only fishery in the most perfect surroundings.

Stocked weekly, often with our own grown fish from our Teesdale fish farm, Hury is a must for traditional fly fishing enthusiasts. It has excellent floating line sport as trout rise to take a variety of dries.

Hury is suitable for disabled anglers with a disabled platform near to the dam wall on the north side close to the fishing lodge and toilet.

For those who like to wander, the middle reaches of the reservoir provides for some fantastic sport particularly on the south shore and where the water flows in from the Selset tunnel on the north shore.
