About Anglezarke Reservoir

The reservoir is popular for bream fishing, with anglers often catching over 50lbs of fish in a single session. It is also home to roach and pike.

To protect the water quality, ground baiting is not allowed. However, you can use feeders and loose maggots as bait. Keep nets are only allowed for official matches, and fishing is only permitted during the day.

Certain areas of the reservoir are off-limits for fishing to protect wildlife, so make sure to check the maps or ask for guidance. Fishing is restricted in some parts during the off-season.
