Tolpuddle, Dorset Trout Lakes - photo

The lakes at Tolpuddle are situated alongside the delightful river Piddle. Over four acres of water in all with five lakes and pools of varying shapes and sizes, the largest lake being 2.5 acres.

Throughout the year the water is almost always crystal clear, which allows the added interest of stalking individual trout and enhancing the challenge of fishing imitative nymph and dry fly patterns.

The lakes are stocked with rainbows from 1 1/2 lbs and of course with many larger. Everything is conveniently close to hand: the car park is beside the main lake and all other facilities are nearby, including B&B, a sitting room and a loo.

The fishery has five delightful trout lakes and pools in Dorset’s famous Piddle Valley: “Meadow Lake” 2.5 acres, “School Lake” .75 acre, “Oxbow” .25 acre, the “Bowl” .25 acre and “Church Pool” .25 acre.
