Bewl Water Country Park ranks highly amongst UK's top stillwater fly-fisheries and in recent years has opened up for 'Any Method' fishing.  Over the last few years Bewl Water has provided amongst the best sport ever in its 37-year history with rod averages consistently hitting record highs.  Top quality fish have come to the net every week including superb home-reared hard fighting blue trout for which Bewl has become renowned. 

Bookings for boats and permits may be made by telephoning the Bewl Fishing Lodge on 01892 890352.  Please note if you want to fish three in a boat you must ensure you book in advance and state this at the time.

BEWL WATER is one of England’s finest and most attractive trout fisheries with boat fishing on much of the lake's 770 acres from the fleet of 54 well-maintained boats - all of which are equipped with 4hp outboard motors - and bank fishing accessible on more than half of the lake’s 17-mile shoreline.  Disabled access for boat anglers is made easier with a modern wheelchair accessible 'Wheelyboat'.

Bewl Water Country Park's beautiful Wealden surroundings and intricate shape appeal both to those who like the intimacy of secluded and sheltered bays, and to those who appreciate the huge expanses and panoramic views experienced only on the larger stillwater fisheries.

All are welcome at the Fishing Lodge where friendly staff will give you information and advice, and newcomers will receive all the assistance they need. The Lodge stocks a wide range of flies and tackle, waterproof clothing and wellies, and is open 7 days per week from 08.30am to 5.30pm during the season which starts on 21st March.

2015 Season Permit Information Pack













These Blue Trout, easily distinguished from normal rainbows by their bright silver underside and often striking blue topside, are noted for their hard fighting qualities which are attributable to their denser muscle tissue.

Fly fishing is a peaceful sport, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life – and you can keep your catch so, with luck, you may take supper home! The lake is stocked with superb quality home-reared trout which, when caught, often weigh over two pounds and sometimes are much heavier. The fishery record for Rainbow trout is 18lbs 10ozs and for Brown trout is 14lbs 10ozs.
