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.

Fishing Update:
At Brompton Lakes we always want our guests to enjoy thier stay with us as much as possible. We have recently had a number of complaints regarding the state of the fishing. In the last year we have become home to a number of predatory birds such as Herons and Cormorants and despite restocking our lakes twice in the last 2 years, we believe our stock levels have dramatically fallen. As a consequence of this we are also experiencing an unusually high volume of lake weed (Crassula Hemsii) due to less fish being able to stir the water. This allows more sunlight through causing rapid growth of weed. At the start of this season we acquired the advice of fishing expert Andrew Ellis. He outlined our issues and we are undertaking a strict maintenance schedule for the Lakes in order to restore them to a high standard and provide a good level of fishing once again. This schedule has been in place for 6 months now and, following a good year of spawning, we are starting to see improvements in the quality of the fishing however we would not wish for you to book and be disappointed. We are hoping for a vast improvement next season, however this cannot be guaranteed. We will continue to monitor the state of the fishing and will offer regular updates to our guests.
We offer our sincerest apologies to anybody who may have been dissapointed by this aspect of their stay.
