Fly fishing for trout in the Cotswolds

Salford Trout Lakes is a small privately owned Trout Fishery, comprising of two spring fed lakes. Eight acres of water set amidst beautiful, rural North Cotswold countryside, the lakes have been in the same family ownership since their creation some 44 years ago. The adjoining unspoilt countryside acts as a wonderful habitat for numerous plant, fly and insect life which lends itself to producing challenging fishing for Brown, Rainbow, Blue and a few Tiger Trout.

Coronavirus – fishing suspended:

In light of the Government’s Coronavirus policy which clearly states everyone should only leave their homes for essential shopping and travel for work if absolutely unavoidable, we feel it is both important and vital to act responsibly and suspend fishing until either clearer and more detailed guidelines are issued or restrictions lifted.

What is not clear is whether travel by car to a place for daily exercise is permitted (we read it as not allowed in order to prevent occurrences like the one that took place in Snowdonia last weekend from happening again).

We are able to isolate and socially distance ourselves here at the Lakes but currently we feel it would be a contradiction of the Government’s attempt to control the spread of this virus to allow fishing to continue.
