Season 29 March - 12 October 2008
With peaceful angling, eight miles of bank and plenty of inlets, angling at Roadford is very enjoyable.
Stocked with brown trout, the Lake is popular for both bank and boat angling. The largest fish to be caught is an 8lb 4oz brown. Roadford also operates an optional catch and release system.
A full day permit costs £11.50, with a concessionary rate of £9.50 per full day. Under 16s can fish for just £3 when sharing their guardians’ bag limit.
Permits can be purchased at the Angling and Watersports Centre. To guarantee a boat, advance booking on 01409 211507 is recommended. Further details on angling at Roadford Lake are available from the Centre, where members of staff will be happy to help. Roadford also has a Wheelyboat providing easy access to the water for people with disabilities, particularly those using a wheelchair.
