Page - Fly Fishing on 34 acre site
Fly Fishing on site – Sorry due to the current situation we are closed for day tickets at the moment for the safety of you, staff & residents.
OPENING HOURS –
The lake is open every day of the year 9.30 am till dusk, fly fishing tickets are available from £15 bank + £7 for a boat or £10 as a resident (free boat). The reserve is a beautifully peaceful 24 acre lake surrounded by fields and woodland adjoining the River Wyre.
The first trout were introduced in 1967 and have thrived in the lake ever since. There is a natural water in-flow to the lake, which is rich in fly and insect life, providing excellent growing conditions for rainbow and brown trout weighing up to 10 lbs, which are supplemented at regular intervals. The big strength of the fly fishery is that it can be fished whatever the weather is doing. The large woodland valley shelters the weather & creates a lot of easy exciting areas to fish.
The maximum depth of the lake is approximately 15′ with the north-eastern basin varying from 2-6′ and the west, centre and southern sections varying from 6-15′, creating a rich and varied fishery.
The full extent of the fishing can best be enjoyed from one of our 14 boats or from strategically positioned piers and casting platforms around the banks. Cleveleymere has a no member policy, which ensures the lake is not over-fished and only fly fishermen are allowed to fish on the lake. We are open every day of the year from 9.30 am till dusk.
We recommend fly fishing October 1st till July 1st as the dog days of July/August always get harder and ring to make a booking especially a boat to avoid disappointment as we can be popular, also to get up dated catch rates and fishing advice and what methods are best.
Check out all the stock of 1000’s of 50 p flies and equipment in our shop. Full tackle hire is always available at £15 a day. ALWAYS a warm welcome and lots of advice where best areas and correct flies to use.
Please note only paying fishermen on site. Sorry no dogs or extra guests . (Due to the high volume of wild life & privacy of our Guests at Cleveleymere)
Coarse & carp fishing over the road at a Fishery from £6 a day, open every day of the year.
