At long last the fishing is starting to normalise at Tenterden after such a hot Summer and the Trout are now feeding on fry on Lake 3 approximately one foot under the surface.  Some good quality Rainbows ranging from 2 lbs to 5lb 8oz have been caught in the past week and given our Anglers some good sport particularly on the evening rise.  Anglers are using their honed tactics and its starting to pay off.


The Trout are interested in colour, yellow, red and a bit of tinsel on flies a little larger than a Buzzer so if you any of these in your box that you think would fit the bill then come on down and give them a try.


We have some wind here now which is cooling the water and aerating it at the same time which is all helpful, our water levels are not as low as they could be but some rain would also help our cause. It has been an extreme Summer this year and we have got off lightly really with only 5 fatalities, we know other Fisheries have had a terrible time and we closed as usual for 6 weeks in July & August which was absolutely the right thing in the extreme heat we have experienced. So now we look forward to some great Autumn fishing.


We are delighted to let you know that the new Fishing Lodge is finished and we hope you will enjoy this relaxing social hub with kitchen and toilet facilities situated in an elevated position on the side of Lake 1. It will add a positive experience to your fishing here at Tenterden and encourage family and friends to come along too. There are some recent photos in the Gallery. 


Boris the Trophy Brown (9lbs+) remains illusive in Lake 3, although he is constantly sighted, and we look forward to him being caught this year. Boris is a catch & release Brown and the Angler who does hook him will be given a bottle of their choice. A photo to validate the catch will need to be taken. 


PARKING & PERMITS AT THE FISHERY – Our new car park is now in use for our Anglers, it is clearly sign posted as you come down the drive (the car park is on your left) and you will see a sign at the bottom of the driveway as you walk down, which informs you where to purchase your permit.


We are delighted to have been voted into the Top 50 of the Top 100 Stillwater Trout Fisheries 2018 in the British Isles by the independent panel of judges at Trout Fisherman Magazine. We remain a Trout Master Fishery.

Gaynor (Audrey’s daughter) and her husband Richard have settled happily in the Farmhouse after the refurbishment in 2017.  It has been a very industrious 3 years on the Farm with our developments. With the Fishing Lodge recently completed we are delighted to say that we have concluded our plans and would to thank all our Anglers for their support throughout this very busy time.  Audrey has now lived happily at Lake View for 3 years and remains very busy with the Fishery & Farm and is enjoying having her family around her.
