Chatton Trout Fishery,
Welcome to Chatton Trout Fishery
Chatton Trout Fishery is owned and run by the Brown family and aims to provide the highest quality trout fly fishing in relaxed, peaceful and friendly surroundings.
Our fishery consists of three lakes; Chatton Lake, Ross Lake, and Dunnydeer Lake, and is situated half a mile from the village of Chatton in picturesque north Northumberland.
We open at 8 a.m. 7 days a week.
All three lakes are stocked twice a week.
We have two aerators on Chatton Lake to ensure ice free fishing over the winter months.
'Chatton Lake' is 4 acres,
'Ross Lake' is approx 3 acres and
'Dunnydeer' is approx 4 acres.
All three lakes are stocked with Tiger, Rainbow, Blue and Brown Trout (all Tiger and Brown Trout must be returned to the lake).
They are all bank fishing lakes with no obstructions for casting.
This is a strictly barbless fishery.
A rod licence is NOT required at Chatton Trout Fishery.
As a big 'thank you' to our anglers we now have 'Loyalty Cards'. After the purchase of six fishing permits the Loyalty Card entitles you to your next visit to the Fishery free of charge.
The tackle shop provides anglers with a selection of all fishing equipment including clothing at very competitive prices. We have a selection of flies, lines, reels and rods etc. We are agents for Greys, Sharpes of Aberdeen, Airflo, the Caledonia Fly Company and many more.
Rods are also available for hire from our shop. Demo rods available - so why not try before you buy!!

News, Competitions and Fishing Reports
Quality fish coming to the net this week despite the hot bright weather conditions making sport more challenging . Mornings and evenings are the best times of the day to fish, in the afternoons fish are sitting deep (all three lakes are approx 22ft). The most constructive method is sinking, intermediate lines or floating lines with long leaders using weighted nymphs, buzzers, bloodworms or lures. Very gentle takes from the fish at the moment so a slow retrieve is essential and keep moving around the lakes.
