Rutland Trout Fishing
**IMPORTANT INFORMATION & OPERATING PROCEDURES FOR ALL ANGLERS**
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 and our 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 read the document below on Information and Operating procedures.
To ensure we comply with social distancing and government guidelines, the fisheries will be observing new operating procedures. We ask that you respect these guidelines and follow them to ensure all our staff and visitors remain safe.
Our internationally recognised trout water offers a fantastic fishing experience for everyone, from experienced anglers to beginners.

Test yourself in competition…
We regularly host national and international fly fishing competitions which provide a fantastic opportunity to test your knowledge and skills. Non-competitors are invited to watch the excitement of the weigh-in (usually around 18:00) at the fishing lodge.
If competition isn’t your thing, don’t worry; there are still plenty of places you can fish in peace and quiet even during competitions.
