Superb Fishing Lakes:

Blagdon Lake (originally Yeo Reservoir) is a renowned fishing lake, teeming with trout (trout are reared in the lake) - as well as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI); and a nature reserve which supports a wide variety of species including ospreys, cormorants, roe deer, swans and badgers. There are 18 rowing boats for hire alongside the lake for those that want to get off the banks and out onto the lake for their fishing...

Covering 1,200 acres, Chew Valley Lake is one of the largest artificial lakes in the UK and is an important wildlife site, Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and Special Protection Area (SPA). The fishing lake also lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With two nature trails, dinghy sailing, excellent trout fishing (rainbow trout and brown trout), large summer shoals of roach and perch, a permanent population of pike (pike fishing is permitted at certain times of year), and 32 motorboats for hire for fishing in the deeper areas, this really is the perfect fishing holiday!

Note: Day and afternoon bank fishing permits are available from nearby Woodford Lodge.

With over 280 recorded species of birds (including some rare and unusual sightings), Chew Valley lake also offers excellent birdwatching potential.
