The finest fly fishing for trout in Cheshire, on a stunning lake near Goostrey. There is ample private parking next to the fishing lodge, which is located close to the lake. 

Our members enjoy still water fly fishing 365 days of the year with an average hourly catch rate of 1.24 trout in May 2018. We ask all our members to renew their membership promptly as not doing so could result in a new member taking their place.

For nearly twenty years our members have enjoyed fly fishing at one of the most beautiful trout venues in Cheshire, located in quiet rural countryside just off the A50 close to the village of Goostrey.

Set in secluded woodland and surrounded with an abundance of plant and bird-life, our lake provides some of the most rewarding fishing to the discerning fly fisherman

The thirty seven acre lake has two islands and can be fished from either boat or bank with a number of fishing jetties being provided where the tree line comes close to the waters edge. 

The area surrounding the lake supports interesting and varied wildlife providing a natural source of feeding for the trout. The water is regularly stocked with hard fighting, full-finned rainbow trout which provide excellent sport.


Westlow Mere Trout Fishery

Tel:  01260 270012

Congleton & District Fly-Fishers was founded in the early eighties specifically to remove the barriers, real or imaginary and make fly-fishing for trout available to anyone who wished to participate.

Westlow Mere is a water run for Fly Fishing by Fly Fishing enthusiasts with friendly service and good advice, the best areas to fish, flies to use and the best method to employ.

Situated just below the town of Congleton in the middle reaches of the Dane Valley, which has for generations catered for the traditional fly-fisherman seeking the river's natural stock of trout, Westlow Mere has benefited from the local experience and expertise; indeed, it was the love of the traditional, handed down from father to son, combined with an appetite for modern fly-fishing which provided the impetus to the formation of the Congleton & District Fly Fishers Ltd., where the combination of good water, charming location, first-class management and the most congenial of atmospheres, give Westlow Mere a very special place in the hearts of all who visit the fishery.
