Laneshaw Reservoir (Reciprocal with Colne Water AC)
Brief description of fishery:
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.
