Leighton Reservoir 2021 season starts Saturday 6th March All places must now be prebooked, 40 rod limit daily


We are very much looking forward to the 29th March when travel restrictions will be lifted.  Hopefully the longer days will be accompanied by warmer weather which will make Spring this year a one to remember for good reasons.

Both Bessy Beck and Leighton Reservoir are open for business, anglers who have managed to come have seen a mixture of good and bad weather, the catches overall have been holding up.  The Island lake at Bessy Beck and Leighton have been stocked with some beautiful Brown Trout which are taking, especially in the sunnier days. 

The new pellet stove in the fishing lodge at Bessy Beck is proving popular, we have revamped the tackle shop and have a good selection of barbless flies.

Since open day 6th March, Leighton reservoir has produced really great catch returns, high numbers and quite a few large doubles.  

We would like to thank our Leighton fly anglers for their patience and adaptability to the on line booking system now in place.  If you are experiencing any difficulties in booking, please contact us and we will try and get you sorted.   

 Normality, seems like a possibility soon and we all need it!

Remember when or wherever you fish, a CATCH RETURN is vital to keep your fishery running at its best.
