Foremark Trout Fishery

Foremark Angling Lodge 

Ticknall Road, 



DE65 6EG

Tel: 01283 703202

With its height and huge dam wall, Foremark is one of those fisheries you can’t see until you’re right upon it.

The reservoir was constructed and landscaped in the mid 70’s well away from major roads, and continued forestry management has resulted in an extremely attractive water ringed by open pasture and deep forest.

The water, which opened to the fly fishing public in 1979, has about four miles of bank fishing. This, coupled with a fleet of 20 boats, half of which are equipped with petrol outboard motors, puts it among the premiership of reservoir fishing.

The reservoir is fed, by pipeline, from the River Dove, which is about five miles away, gives the fishery a rich feed of aquatic insects that come in with the water at the popular and aptly named ‘Cascade’, on the eastern side of the reservoir.


Ladybower Fisheries



S33 0AZ

Office phone: 01433 659712
Fishery mobile: 07876 216199

Ladybower reservoir is the largest of the three reservoirs in the Upper Derwent Valley, famous for its connection with The Dambusters.

Ladybower Fisheries is quite possibly the premier UK fly fishing venue made special by its location in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Alongside the acclaimed strong fighting qualities of the Rainbow, Blue and Brown trout (some growing in excess of 20lbs), we have a full range of facilities available to our customers, whether it’s fishing from over 13 miles of bank, our fully powered boats or from float tubes. All this and a well stocked fishing tackle shop.

The Peak District is a fantastic location for plenty to see and do for the non-angler, so the family is well catered for.
