PeakParkCC Anglers Welcome

The Peak Park Conservation Centre welcome anglers who want rest and relaxation before and after fishing some of the best waters in the Peak District National Park.

PeakParkCC Welcome Anglers

On our doorstep we have steam and reservoir angling for both stocked and wild trout.

Japanese "Tenkara" angling in the upper tributaries of the Howden, Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs.

The Ladybower reservoir has superb fishing from both boat and bank for stocked rainbow, blue and brown trout.

In the winter months there is a pike fishing syndicate on Ladybower reservoir.

We are happy to welcome anglers for one, two or more nights in our static caravan or under canvas and help with all your fishing requirements.

We can arrange contact for guides and tuition with the local fisheries, clubs and syndicates.

The Peak Park Conservation Centre is less than two miles from the Ladybower fishery office where you sign in for your days fishing and make your returns at the end of the day.
