Fishing season at Rutland Water starts on Friday

Have your say

Rutland Water open to anglers on Friday.

Anglian Water’s boat fleet has undergone its annual overhaul and in recent weeks and the wardens have been busy stocking fish.

Over the weekend a group of enthusiastic volunteers from Rutland Water Fly Fishers turned out to do their annual litter pick.

Some winter restrictions are still in force.  In order to comply with Natural England some areas are out of bounds to anglers until 1 April.  The usual boat restrictions apply beyond the sailing limits in both arms. Bank anglers are also not permitted in this area plus the banks from Barnsdale Creek around the North Arm Bank to the Finches, from Armley Wood to Hinmans Spinney and from Old Hall Bay to the East side of the Sailing Club Bay. If you have any questions please ask a member of staff at the fishing lodge.
