Rutland Water regularly hosts national and international fly fishing competitions and you can witness the excitement of the catch weigh-in at the fishing lodge, usually around 6pm.

Even when competitions are taking place, the needs of the pleasure angler just wanting peace and quite out on the water are still met.

  • Sixty five per cent of trout caught weigh in at two pounds and trout grow to fifteen pounds.
  • Huge pike and zander are also caught.
  • Fishing permits are available from the tackle shops. However , if the shop is shut, tickets are available from:
    • Vendor hut at the toilet block on Normanton car park, Rutland Water Park.
    • Vendor hut next to the Rockblok at Whitwell car park, Rutland Water Park.
