Kingfisher Trout Lake
Kingfisher Trout Lake is an attractive spring-fed four acre landscaped water which celebrated its 20th anniversary in Spring 2012 and offers first-class trout fishing in beautiful countryside between Bromyard and Leominster in Herefordshire.
Designed with disabled anglers in mind and equipped with casting platforms, the lake is restocked frequently on a ‘put and take’ basis and offers rainbow and brown trout fishing with an average stock weight of 2lbs but with fish to 5lbs regularly coming to the net.
In addition to the fishing there is a centrally-heated fishing lodge where anglers can enjoy a selection of hot and cold drinks, hire tackle at a cost of £5.00 per day, or stock up on flies and lures.
Staff at the lodge are happy to give help and advice on the best fly to use, depending on the season, water temperature, weather conditions and fish activity. There are also on-site toilets which are suitable for disabled anglers.
Accommodation for anglers travelling from further afield can be arranged at a variety of hotels, pubs or guest houses nearby. Kingfisher Trout Lake has become a certified Caravan and Camping Club site enabling those who want to stay at the venue
For those new to the sport or who have developed bad habits, there is also free tuition on site which can be provided by prior appointment with fishery owner Dennis Wall, a member of the Association of Stillwater Game Fishery Managers and a trout angler of many years standing.
