Set in the stunning Piethorne Valley, Ogden Reservoir is a 35 acre stretch of water that offers prime fishing to both the beginner and more seasoned angler. This site has become extremely popular with the local angling community both for its scenery and optimal Trout fishing. The waters are open from dawn until dusk, with the fishing season lasting from 25th of March to 31st October. Tickets start from £8.50, with discounts being offered for juniors and the elderly. Children are permitted to fish in the venue; however, they must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

The waters are healthily stocked with Carp, Bream, Tench, Pike and Trout.

Bream and Tench tend to come in between 3-7lbs. Large Pike, Carp, and Trout have all frequently been landed at weights exceeding 20lbs.
