“Situated approximatly 1 Mile from Seaton Village, Co...”

Situated approximatly 1 Mile from Seaton Village, Co Durham, Sharperley Springs Trout Fishery has easy access from the A19 and A1M for anlers who wish to travel.It has five Fishing areas one being a bait only area. The remainder are fly only with the lakes further devided for catch and release,nymph only and a Kill only lake where all fish must be taken. Pricing is reasonable with a three fish ticket costing £18 a two fish ticket costing £15 and a sporting ticket £9. The first fish on a kill ticket must be taken however you can then catch and release untill you catch further specimens you wish to keep. There are other ticket combinations available and the staff member at the lodge was very helpful in explaining them and showing the layout of the lakes. The lakes are well kept and clear of rubbish with well placed fishing pegs. The stock range is from 1.5 lbs to some big double figure monsters which seem to spend their day just cruising the lake. The only downside is that there is no tackle shop at the lodge which I think would benefit the fishery. Toilet facilities are good as is access to the reservoirs. However disabled access could be better with some laid pathways to the different lakes.That said most areas by vitue of the fishery layout is fairly easily accessible. The fish I encountere were in good condition making for an excitin experience. All in all I can say I thououghly enjoyed my visit to the fishery and would reccomend it to my fishing colleagues
