Whittle Dene Fishing


Welton, Harlow Hill, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland NE18 0LH, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The Whittle Dene Reservoir is a location for coarse fishing fund in Northumberland close to Harlow Hill. In the world of fishing, the coarse fishery has earned a great reputation for both specimen fish and consistent hauls.

You can choose to fish in any of the four lakes, each of which has a healthy population of roach, perch, dace, and gudgeon. The roach population in the Northern Lake is at its peak in the summer, although the lake also contains dace, perch, and crucian fish throughout the year.

Crucian carp, dace, and perch are the majority in the Bottom Lake, which covers an area of around 17 acres of water.

What size do the fish go to?

Fish can g up to and above 15lb

What tactics work well?

When fishing in the upper two lakes, it is generally advisable to cast your line away from the shoreline, as here is where you will find the largest fish. If you would rather be alone, the walk to the Great Southern lake, which takes about ten to fifteen minutes and passes through some breathtaking countryside, is well worth the effort. There, you have the opportunity to experience some of the best roach fishing you will ever have. Pole, or float fishing with the right bait will always catch you some fish.
