Fishing Lodges Yorkshire
The lodges are set around two coarse fishing lakes and are just a stone’s throw from the banks of the River Swale, making the opportunity for varied fishing.
Carp weighing up to 20lb, Bream, Tench and Roach can be found in our lakes on site, so we’d recommend you bring along a variety of tackle and bait. Even more variety awaits you when fishing from our easily accessible ¾ of a mile of river frontage. In season, this stretch of the fast-flowing River Swale is home to Grayling, Wild Brownie, Dace and Perch and, with a little skill and patience, any or all of these could be the catch of the day. *
Brompton Lakes is also close to a number of popular fishing sites – most only a few miles drive away. These include the Jubilee Lakes Fly Fishery in Darlington which was voted 6th in the top 50 fisheries in the UK (Trout Fisherman Magazine) and the neighbouring Ellerton Park Site, a few miles down the road near Bolton on Swale.
Brompton Lakes stocks a small selection of fishing bait. Please ask at reception on arrival.
