Pitsford Water Park Trout Fishing


We were delighted to re-open to anglers on Tuesday 2nd June 2020. Our fisheries team is available to take bookings for the coming months.  The lodges are open 7 days a week.  Please note, however that in order to maintain social distancing and cut down on the amount of traffic in the lodges, all boats booked  will need to be paid for at the point of booking.   We will still be accepting ‘walk-ins’ for boat fishing but strongly suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Please open and read the document below.

Pitsford Water is very popular among fly fishing anglers. It’s a tranquil scene, with its clear waters stocking rainbow and brown trout and attracting anglers of all abilities and ages.
