Hollowell Coarse Fishing
Specimen carp, pike, tench, bream, roach and perch all swim our waters, as well as a large head of roach x bream hybrids, who all present their own unique set of challenges for coarse anglers.
So, whether you are an amateur or are a seasoned angler, Hollowell Reservoir is the perfect place to take a chair, rod and bait and while away the day fishing.

When you purchase your permit, you will be given an access code, so you can open the gates and access the reservoir whenever you want to fish.
When can I fish?
This too depends on the season permit you buy. The winter season permit allows fishing from October to February while the full season ticket grants year-round access to the reservoir.
Lure fishing is available at Hollowell Reservoir all year round, however dead sea baits can only be used in our waters during the winter season (1 October – 28 February).
