Welcome to Foremark Fishery

230 acre day ticket fishery in the Derbyshire countryside for trout and pike.

A trout and predator day ticket fishery on a 230 acre reservoir set in the beautiful Derbyshire Countryside. The fishery offers bank fishing and a limited number of boats are also available for guests. Fly fishing and spinning permitted (later in season) with a chance of a 15lb+ trout or 35lb+ pike. *** Please wear face masks in the lodge and social distance for everyones safety. Hand sanitiser is available in the entrance. We now take contactless payment as well as bank transfers. *** Fishing 17th November to 21st November Once again Mark from Walkers of Trowell showed how it was done with the best catch of six to the boat including the biggest rainbow at 4lb and the biggest brown at around 5lb. The water temperature around 11C and getting towards what might be considered a little more normal. There are now six boats on the water and we will start on strimming some more of the bank between the two pontoons as the fish seem to be on that bank. You might have heard that the National Trust will be taking over running of Foremark, and Staunton Harold, from Spring 2022. This will be run from nearby Calke Abbey. It is not yet clear if this will have any effect. The boat average was 2.5 and the bank 1. Even though the bank average was lower this week new angler Jason managed to land his first trout after losing several over the previous weeks. Congratulations Jason! Best area was pontoon and Hut Point and best flies were damsels and blobs. No notable pike to report this week. There are limited slots available for pike spinning to limit pressure on the fish, so booking is essential. We still suggest having a DI7 line set up, as the fish are still deep, along with a floating line for any opportunist rising fish. STILL five free trout flies for first angler catch a blue! Photo or the fish as evidence. We have STILL not seen one for some time. Fishery Staff decision is final. *** This week fishing until 15:45 (anglers off site by 16:00). £10 C&R for last four hours. Boats subject to availability on the day. *** *** We are open until at least the 05 December 2021 and Will probably stay open longer if there is a demand and do a day over Christmas. *** email us at foremarkfishery@gmail.com

Foremark Reservoir

Foremark is a 230 acre supplied with water from the River Dove. The reservoir is close to the historic town of Repton. The water is up to 100 foot deep in places and has a wide range of depths to fish including some attractive bays including the Cascade inlet itself. We stock the reservoir with hard fighting rainbows, browns and some blues and there are also resident pike, perch and other coarse fish species including barbel and chub. Sometimes the chub, which run to around 3lb, also take the fly. If it lives in the River Dove its highly likely its also in the reservoir. The perch have been scarce recently but 14lb+ browns and 9lb+ rainbows have been caught in 2020. These are residents that have grown on.
