Rutland Water Fishing

Introduction to Rutland Water

Chosen as the venue for the 2018 World Lure Angling Championships, Rutland Water is part of Anglian Water’s lakes, and offers competitors and general anglers exceptional fishing opportunities for anglers from all over the world. With both trout fly fishing and predator fishing on offer at the lakes.

The location is internationally recognised for its fly fishing, offering an exceptional experience for anglers both beginner and experienced. For those looking to test the Predator Fishing on the waters, you will find pike, zander and perch under the surface. There’s also a host of national and international competitions held on the water – an excellent opportunity to put your skills to the test.

Aside from the fishing there’s plenty more on offer for visitors to Rutland Water, a nature reserve in its own right. Covering a total of 1000 acres, the reserve hosts visitor centres, nature trails, bird watching sites, and much more.
