Fishing at The Boathouse

Pittville lower lake is one of the finest places to go fishing in Gloucestershire: eels, dace, pike, roach, carp and bream all have been caught here (and thrown back to swim again).  You can get the best possible access to the water’s edge thanks to four fishing platforms and two specialist stations for use by disabled anglers. 

What do you need: You must have an environmental agency rod licence – this can be purchased at the Post Office or online at You also need a Day permit for the day you want to fish on. 

Day permits are available from the hatch at the Boathouse – £7.20 for adults or £4.30 for OAPs and juniors.

Please follow the fishing guidelines at all time, these can be found here

The lower lake is also a boating lake and anglers should ensure that when casing that their swim is clear or both wildlife and boats to prevent injury.
