Packington Trout Fishing
Located in a delightful setting close to the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel, we have two lakes which offer quality trout fishing available to day and season ticket anglers. Both pools are stocked mainly with rainbow trout with a number of brown and blue trout as well. A small lodge, offering light refreshments, toilet facilities and a range of flies and tackle is on site along with ample lakeside parking. The lakes are:
A ten acre restored gravel pit offering both boat and bank fishing. Good fly hatches, particularly in the spring see lots of fish caught on small imitative patterns and through the winter the lure fishing can be excellent. Lake record Rainbow is 21lb and brown is 19lb 8oz.
The Day Ticket Water – Cocks Close, re-opens on Saturday 23rd September. Extensive bank clearance and re-stocking has been undertaken. Rainbows, blues and browns have been re-stocked and the water quality is looking spot on.
Day tickets are £25 for two fish plus catch and release with other ticket options available along with concessions for senior citizens. The Fishery will open at 8 am until dusk (7 pm).
Please contact the Lodge on 01676 522754 for bookings and further details.
This delightful five acre pool, set in scenic mature parkland is a short walk from the lodge. Boat and limited bank fishing is available and the imitative sport at times can be outstanding with huge hatches of olives and buzzers. Only six anglers are allowed at any one time giving a relaxed fishing experience away from the crowds.
