Common Moor, Liskeard, Cornwall, PL14 6ER

Fishery Information

Siblyback Lake stands 850 feet above sea level and can be found near the town of Liskeard just on the edge of Bodmin Moor. The lake is a massive 140 acres in size and the views you get when fishing here is fantastic because it’s so high up. It’s 5km all the way around, so as well as fishing, you can get your exercise in.

You can fish from the bank or hire a boat as there are 2 boats available to hire but these must be booked the day before.

Tickets are self-service here and are available from the hut in the fishermen’s car park.

As well as rainbow trout there are also blue trout and brown trout.

What size do the fish go to?

  • There’s no massive trout in here, with the biggest being about 6lb.

What tactics work well?

There is a case at the fishermen’s car park with flies that work well.

You’ll find the bank fishing can be just as rewarding as the boat. The places to start fishing that tend to hold the most fish are Two Meadows, Crylla Bay, Stocky Bay, and North Shore although you will catch fish all-round the lake.

What facilities are on-site?

There’s a cafe selling refreshments. This isn’t just for the fishermen as members of the public come to walk around the lake.

Is parking available?

Yes, there’s a dedicated car park as people come to walk around the lake.
