Spend a day fly fishing for Wild Brown Trout on the River Dun and for Rainbow Trout and Blue Trout on our well-stocked lakes. This ticket can only be used between the 3rd April and the 24th October and can be used on the lakes or the river as you please. Please note that no fish may be taken from the river as this is strictly catch and release only, however two fish may be taken from the Lakes which is catch to kill only.
Our stretch of the River Dun is around 1.2 km long with around 650 metres of the banks being fishable. The average width is about 6 metres and average depth 1.5 metres with the water usually being gin clear. In the top half of our beat the water flows fast over chalky gravel beds. In the second half it slows around a bend and flows silently under overhanging branches, this is often where the trout often tend to be.
