Fly fishing season opens at Carsington on 12 March 2016

We are looking forward to opening for the 2016 Fly fishing season on Saturday 12th March, we are currently fully booked for the Saturday but have plenty of boats left on the Sunday. It’s great to be starting the season once again with high water levels, all this winter rain has certainly helped. Over the winter we have been busy preparing the fishery for the coming season and below are some of the details.

Prices for 2016
There has been a small increase in boat prices however the permit prices have remained the same as last season.

Discounts are available if you purchase 10 Day permits in advance. This offer is available for both full day 6 fish permits and concessionary 4 fish permits. You can save up to £30.00! Don't forget the permits must be used within the 2016 season. Many anglers purchased these at the beginning of last season.

We are pleased to confirm that we have secured stocking from the same 2 suppliers as the last 4 seasons. The stocking regime has been organised to ensure regular (usually weekly) stocking throughout the season. As usual we will be stocking both rainbow and brown trout at various locations around the reservoir to help the fish distribute as naturally as possible. With several deliveries pre-season we hope the opening weekend will present some excellent sport.
