Fly Fishing – Dilworth Reservoir –  1 minute walk FROM MEADOW COTTAGE

 

Dilworth Reservoir is a small reservoir with the dam wall at its western end. Located directly opposite the farm gate entrance to Hill Top Farm and Meadow Cottage.

 Access is through a pedestrian gate in the Southern wall. The gate is locked and a key can be obtained from Roger Dolphin. Members may retain only two fish per day, with a limit of four fish per week. All other fish must be returned immediately.

Fishing is allowed from all banks excluding the Dam end (nearest Longridge). Fly fishing is the only permitted method.

Day fishing permits for Dilworth Reservoir are available at the Happy Shopper on Higher Road in Longridge. Costs are £10 for brown and rainbow trout (two fish limit) with no concessions. An £8 returnable deposit is required for the gate key.
