Winter fishing has been good at Tenterden, the Trout are active and Lake 3 has produced some great action and Lakes 1 and 2 have great stock too! In the last 10 days we have had 4 quality 7lbs Rainbows caught and many others in varying weights so this last stocking is proving good news for our Anglers. All our Trout are fighting hard which all adds to a great experience at our Fishery. It is good to see our Anglers enjoying their sport during the festive season. We have stocked some larger 8lbs Blues this month for you to enjoy together with the usual varying weights of Rainbows between 3-8lbs, so the challenge is on! We still have some beautiful Brownies in Lake 3 and we kindly ask you to return them to the water. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you down here soon for some exciting Winter fishing! Tight Lines!


The Fishery will be closed from the 24 December and will re-open on the 1 January 2022.

We are busy with bookings which is great to see so please call to book to avoid disappointment and let us know what permit you wish to purchase. Please note that the afternoon permits will start at 1pm instead of 2pm due to the evenings drawing in.

Stay & Fish: We opened our Shepherds Hut (The Ghillies Hut) last Summer for accommodation at our Fishery so you can come and stay and fish and I am delighted to say that it has been very well received reading the reviews. Our Hut can accommodate 1-2 people and is set in our fields, where our Romney Sheep graze, with spectacular views, through the valley, over our Lakes up to St. Mildred's Church in Tenterden. A truly beautiful setting. The Ghillies Hut is off grid, with no TV/Broadband, we want you to enjoy the nature that will surround you. For more information/bookings - please visit the Shepherds Hut heading on our website which provides a direct link to Airbnb. We are offering 20% off all fishing permits if you are staying in the Hut. It's a minimum 2 night stay but if you only wanted to stay one night then please contact Gaynor.

Boris our 9.5lbs trophy Brownie remains the challenge for 2021. Several Anglers have had the excitement of having him on the end of their line but he has broken them every time. When someone does land him they will need to validate the catch with a photo and be rewarded with a bottle of your choice.

We have a super Fishing Lodge 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 has its own verandah for sitting out and enjoying the weather overlooking the Lake for some relaxing downtime. The Lodge provides a great space for our Anglers to have lunch/tea over a cup of tea/coffee with our compliments.  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. If you would like to hire out our Lodge between 7pm & 10.30pm please contact Gaynor.
