Following extensive renovations to multiple historic lakes on the estate, the Memorial Fishing Lakes at Belvoir Castle, Leicestershire, are open to the public for trout fishing.
Originally conceived over 200 years ago by the country's greatest landscape architect, Capability Brown, his plans have been finally realised in line with the tercentenary of his birth.
The fishery is made up of two waters, a 12 acre lake known as the Lower Lake & the Small Lake which is 1/4 of an acre. These typical estate lakes are shallow & silty with a variety of features for the angler to fish to including islands, streambeds, bloodworm beds and waterfalls.
Membership is £350 per year.
Day Tickets are £25 and have a limit of 2 fish
This truly is a most stunning location to angle with Belvoir Castle as a back drop. The lakes have been stocked with Brown, Rainbow and Tiger Trout between 1.5 and 14lb.
Catch and return is allowed if barbless hooks are used.
You must book in prior to fishing.
