Laneshaw Reservoir (Reciprocal with Colne Water AC)

Brief description of fishery:
Laneshaw Reservoir
Located on Reedshaw Moss on the Colne to Keighley Road, high on the moor Laneshaw is surrounded by beautiful views across the Borough of Pendle. The reservoir is a peaty water of approximately 16 acres offering fishing most of the way round, with banks and dam wall offering the angler very good accessibility. A borehole of more PH-balanced water feeds in at the neck end, so that the reservoir holds an amazing variety of fly life. However – dependant on ever changing moods – the water can be either frustratingly challenging to fish or an absolute anglers’ paradise, with fish chasing every fly dropped on the water. Rainbow trout are regularly stocked throughout the season.

Open for fishing:
25th March to 30th September (CWAC Members all year round)
NOTE: Fishing can be stopped when waters are low.

Both fisheries are strictly Catch & return for BCAA members.
Bradford City AA has a reciprocal arrangement for BCAA members to fish on two stillwaters (Churn Clough and Laneshaw reservoirs) managed by the Colne Water Angling Club (CWAC), subject to a maximum of 5 Day Tickets per day.
Members are limited to four permits per season.
Day Permits can be booked, at no extra charge, from the BCAA Clubmate App.
Anglers MUST book the Day Permit before fishing. When booking via BCAA Clubmate App, an email which details all the rules of the fishery, will be sent to you and this acts as both permit and receipt of payment.
When fishing, all BCAA anglers must produce evidence of their booking plus their BCAA membership book, on request.
