Ackers Lake, Pensford

Ackers Lake, Pensford. Fly Fishing for rainbow trout, £15

Members only, not available to anglers using Exchange Tickets.

This lake is stocked with Rainbow Trout supplied by Bristol Water and is managed by Knowle Angling Club. Fishing is for Knowle members with a special concession for FADAA members to fish with a day ticket.

After stocking the fish naturalise very quickly meaning you have to “match the hatch” to catch, in the late spring and summer months there’s an excellent evening “rise”. The lake has parking close to the water.

When challenged you must show your booking via the Clubmate Fishing app, the booking email is not valid as confirmation of your day ticket, without being able to show the app you’ll be asked to leave the fishery.
