Fishery Information

The Tring Reservoirs is a group of four lakes near Tring, tucked right on the border of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. These reservoirs feed the Grand Union Canal.

Startops End, Marsworth, Wilstone, and Tringford are the four lakes, with the Tringford Reservoir a private trout fishery unavailable for members.

Membership to the Tring Anglers permits fishing at Startops End, Marsworth, and Wilstone. New members can only fish the Marsworth Reservoir in their first season with the group, with a reduced rate applying to the fees.

The reservoirs feature a good amount of specimens, including Wels catfish, carp, bream, tench, roach, and perch.

What size do the fish go to?

Wels catfish up to 60 pounds, carp over 50 pounds, and bream and tench in the double-digits teem these waters.

Many carp exist in the 30-to-40 pound scale, with perch up to six pounds as well.

What tactics work well?

The sport is best here when there is a breeze and some cloud cover, so the weather is definitely a factor in terms of how much the fish are biting.

There are substantial rules to follow when fishing the Tring Reservoirs. These apply to all members at all times.

No fires and no litter permitted.

Dogs are permitted only with the prior knowledge of the bailiff. Anglers are responsible for their animals – and anything they may leave behind.

Keepnets are not permitted, except during matches.

Bait boats are not allowed.

Heavy fixed bolt rigs are prohibited. Rig checks may be completed by bailiffs at any time.

Is parking available?

There is parking available with a permit. Permits must be displayed on the windshield. All cars are parked at owners’ risk.

  1. Hi, myself and a friend are planning a days fishing at tring As we haven’t been before could you tell us which part of the complex to fish. We are looking to catch bream and possibly tench. This would be very helpful to us when we get there.
    Many thanks Mark.
