Thornwood Springs Trout Fishery is a complex of lakes and pools all dedicated purely to fly fishing. The lakes are spring fed and crystal clear water all year, suitable for stalking due to the clarity.


The lake beds are gravel, clay, sand and chalk mix so cover a wide range of insect life and hatches. Mayfly, damsels, buzzers, sedges, etc. from the lake and huge terrestrial hatches from the surrounding land and hedgerows with the hawthorn fly hatch being particularly memorable.

The lakes are stocked weekly with hard fighting fin perfect rainbow and brown trout well into double figures.

Crystall clear water. Excellent dry fly fishing with superb fully finned fish in top condition. Well worth a trip if you like using imitative dry patterns.


Best fishery for many miles, with 3 lakes to choose from and healthy hard fighting rainbows and browns in each one that respond to nymphs and dries at almost any time off year. Still developing and maturing as a fishery and the small shop and basic facilities are gradually being expanded and improved.
