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.
