Pennington Reservoir

Brief description of fishery:

Pennington is a picturesque 18 acre water with stunning views. often visited by ospreys means it is popular amongst anglers and bird watchers. Pennington can be tricky, but once you find the fish its great sport!

An abundance of patterns work on this water from dry flies to fast stripped lures under the surface.

A vast water with a variety of depths and features, opens up opportunities to employ different fly methods at various times of the year.

Pennington lends itself to a small number of  bays where the angler can stalk the trout from the bank, and can camouflage into the surroundings.

Spinning is allowed on here single hook only!
