Fishing at Otter Falls is reserved exclusively for our guests and has the added benefit of three lakes fed entirely from natural springs rising on the estate. So we have complete control over the quality of the water, fish varieties and stock levels.
Originally constructed over 30 years ago, our three lakes span over seven acres and have been enlarged and beautifully landscaped with islands to encourage water birds to nest. Man-made waterfalls increase water aeration so there’s no pond weed to get your line tangled in.
You’ll find our largest fish in our top lake with Carp varieties such as mirror, common and ghost up to 27lbs. Also located here are very large bream, tench, rudd, roach & perch and even golden orfe.
The middle and lower lakes were originally for rainbow trout and some ‘monsters’ still remain. However, over the past 12 years, fry from the top lakes have seeded and excellent fishing with fish up to 12 lbs is not unusual. Five years ago, we introduced a good quantity of 2lb carp on the lower lake which have grown to provide excellent sport at 8-10lbs.
For the ultimate fishing holiday some of our lodges even offer you fishing right outside your front door…
Should you need them, rods and tackle are available to hire.
