Witton Castle Lakes is closed to visiting anglers until further notice. Details of opening dates and times for club members will be published on the BADAC website in the members area.
We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause but anglers interested in fishing at the Lakes or assisting in their operation are encouraged to take out membership.
This is the final report for the 2016 season from Witton Castle Lakes trout fishery for the week ending 26th November – a week that saw a big drop in temperatures with some minor icing over of the lakes.

Grayling season tickets for all BADAC waters valid from November 1st 2016 to March 15th 2017 are available from “Fish Pal” for £35.00. The grayling fishing is fly only, catch and release with barbless hooks.
After an extremely quiet previous week Witton Castle Lakes welcomed 12 dedicated anglers this last week who braved the cold temperatures to fish the lakes. With the going very hard they saw limited success with bag numbers kept into single figures.
