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.

Do I need a permit to fish?

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. Please bring with you a passport sized photograph for the permit.

Hollowell fishery rules apply. Please request these from Pitsford Fishing Lodge.

When can I fish?

This too depends on the season permit you buy. The day permit allows you to fish from sunrise until dusk. The day and night permit allows you to fish 24 hours a day.
