New season at our fisheries

The last few weeks building up to the new season have been very busy with maintenance on our boat fleet and we’ve been stocking lots of quality fish at all four of our waters. The new season is already under way at Ravensthorpe and Pitsford with Grafham opening on Friday 6 March followed by Rutland on Friday 13 March. All four waters are taking boat bookings so call now to make sure you don’t miss out.

For more information on 2020 fishing permits and matches at all of our waters.

Anglian Water Airflo International

There's still time (if you're quick!) to enter this year's competition.
A new innovation for 2020 is a change to the usual format of our Anglian Water Airflo International competition. Teams now only need to fish one heat for a chance to qualify for the prestigious International Final at Rutland or the Grafham Water Championship. All heats are open to all anglers with no regional restrictions. To find out more email fishing@anglianwater.co.uk 
Take a look at the new format for 2020 and if you think you’ve got what it takes to take on 2019 champions Menteith Ospreys, fill in the application form and who knows, it could be you holding the trophy next year.

Fishing, walking, cycling, water sports

Our water parks not only bring vital water resources for the region, but they also provide a fantastic day out for all the family.

Whether you're looking for an action-packed day on the water, a spot of fishing to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life, or simply want to enjoy a relaxing walk in beautiful surroundings, look no further than our fabulous water parks.
