The Lakes at Ellerdine


We have four well-established spring-fed lakes here at the Ellerdine Lakes Trout Fishery: Cranymoor, Lakemoor, Meadow and Marsh. Each lake has its own individual character, but all are well stocked with Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Blue Trout, providing an excellent day of fishing. The average size is 3lbs but much larger fish upto 20lb are caught daily.




The lakes which have been designed for ease of casting usually have clear water which makes them an ideal stalking water. At Ellerdine Lakes we believe that everyone should enjoy a good day's fishing, and so we have provided disabled access to each of our lakes. Areas in close proximity around much of the lakes have been cleared of obstacles enabling wheelchair access as close as possible to the waterside. We also provide a disabled toilet in our on-site facilities.

Ellerdine Fishing Report
January 5th 2015

Ellerdine has been very busy over the Christmas break, with 264 anglers catching some quality trout.

Lots of big fish in the returns again, with 19 double figure fish alone this Week.

Largest Rainbow was a 15lb 10oz fish for Mr Gilbert Telford, taken on a Yellow dancer on Meadow Lake, plenty of other large Rainbows to 14lb off all lakes taking various flies.

Lots of Browns around the 7lb mark have been returned this last couple of weeks, with the largest a huge specimen of just over 14lb, returned Gary Marsden from the Wirral, he used a Cats Whisker on Meadow lake which took over 10 minutes to land.

Heaviest Tiger of the week went to Mark Morris Shrewsbury with a Tiger of just over 13lb on Lakemoor, with former double World Champion Iain Barr landing fully finned Tiger of 9lbs also.

Best Bag went to young England Youth International Alex Morris Shrewsbury with a haul of 37 Rainbows to 8lb, he fished mainly damsels and buzzers close in the margins.

Fishing still remains excellent, with small flies and short casts in the margins producing the best bags, with the larger fish tending to hold out in the middle.
