Welcome to the website of Witton Castle Lakes, one of, if not the, premier trout fisheries of the North East of England. Situated in the grounds of Witton Castle, in the heartland of the picturesque Wear valley, the fishery is just off the A68, South of the River Wear and the village of Witton le Wear.
Open throughout the year, we provide excellent fly-fishing for top-quality trout in over 20 acres of water. Being set in open parkland means that anglers have access to more than 2 miles of bank space without any major obstacles to casting.
We welcome anglers of all standards. The Fisheries Officers are on hand to give guidance and advice. Casting and fishing tuition by a fully qualified and insured coach is available by arrangement. We aim to provide first-class fishing in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Operated by Bishop Auckland District Angling Club.
