The Island Lake provides a challenge for the experienced fly fisherman, with trout stocked from 2lb to 15lb it is the only lake where catch and release is allowed.
The Mallard lake is another Fly Fishing Lake where all fish caught must be killed, these cooperative 1.5lb fish make it the ideal lake for newcomers to fly fishing or for those who wish to take a few home for the pot.
The Heron Lake is now cloesd for bait fishing, it will be an additional fly fishing lake in 2017.
At Bessy Beck we have fully qualified licensed angling coaches; this enables us to provide fly fishing instruction for complete beginners and lessons for improvers.
Bessy Beck has a well stocked tackle shop for the game fisherman, there is tackle for the lake and river trout angler as well as equipment for the local salmon enthusiast. Beginners fly fishing starter kits are a specialty.
