Fishery Information

Sharpley Springs Fly Fishery in Durham has 6 lakes where you can only fish with a fly rod. There is also a special lake for kids who want to use worms as bait. The fishery is located near the A19 highway and has beautiful views of the sea. The lakes stay unfrozen in the winter, so you can fish all year round.

The lakes are stocked with many different types of fish, including rainbow trout, blue trout, brown trout, and Goldieā€™s. Some of the fish are very big, with the record being a 23.6-pound fish. You can fish from early morning until dusk.

The lakes are fed by natural springs and have lots of aquatic plants, which means there are plenty of insects for the fish to eat. You can catch a lot of fish with just a floating line and a buzzer fly. In the winter, bloodworm patterns are popular. In the summer, dry flies like sedges and midges are effective.

There is a lodge at the fishery where you can warm up and enjoy free tea and coffee. The lodge is accessible for people with disabilities. Sharpley Springs Fly Fishery is a great place for fishing all year round, and they offer excellent fishing lessons if you need them. Visit their website for more information. We hope to see you at the lakes soon!
