Open all year for Pike fishing
The reservoir is surrounded by beautiful wild heather moorland and is relatively shallow, making it an excellent choice for both fly and bait anglers alike. All fish are stocked from our own Teesdale fish farm, with some of those stocked being tagged fish with cash prizes available. You can loose feed and ground bait around the reservoir and we are also offering pike fishing all year round.
Scaling Dam is accessible for disabled anglers with a disabled platform close to the visitor centre. There are also car parks available at each end of the reservoir for easy access to fishing points.
For those who like to wander, the middle reaches of the reservoir provide some fantastic sport particularly on the south shore and shallow east end bay.
On site we have an excellent lodge shop stocked with everything you need for a day’s fishing including rods, reels, tackle, accessories, clothing, worms, bait, ice creams and refreshments including hot and cold drinks.
