Fly fishing for trout in the cotswolds.

Salford Trout Lakes is a small privately owned Trout Fishery comprising of two spring fed lakes totalling 8 acres of water set admist 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

A "Catch and Release" policy now exists on all species, having implemented a gradual relaxing of the past "Catch and Kill" policy of recent years. This appears to be the concensus of the majority of Fishermen. Changing attitudes in many sports and pastimes reflects today's lifestyles demanding participation and relaxation above the necessity of large numbers of fish for the larder.

Fishermen wishing to take fish are encouraged to take Rainbows and any fish that are not fit to be returned to the water must be killed. Please use barbless hooks at all times.


The easter holiday is an excellent time to start
fishing. Tuition is available and concessionary
rates apply for under 14’s. Please ring fishery
office for details.
