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.
