Turned up early on a sunny enough Bank Holiday Sunday, first anglers on the lake. I'd probably not fly fished in about 10 years, and Christine was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. She told us where to fish and sold us the flies she'd recommend. We duly listened, and despite my being a terrible fly angler who can barely cast, I had 4 fish in a morning (plus lost 3 that came nearly to the net). My even less competent father had 2 fish and dropped 1. The water is lovely and clear, the fish are in great condition and the surroundings are very pleasant More...

Christine gave our family a warm welcome. I spent some time showing our three little ones how to cast and retrieve then enjoyed a family picnic overlooking the very well tended lake in a beautiful setting. After my wife took the little ones off for some sightseeing I enjoyed a few hours catching a brace of rainbows releasing both. A very enjoyable day. More...

Despite the freezing weather & snow - the troutcatcher crew received a very warm welcome from Christine at Kingfisher Trout Lakes on Saturday (27-10-18) - to be fair the weather made it a very challenging day, but we all managed to have a few bites and landed a few superb fighting fish. Christine with plenty of hot drinks and great advice helped - One of our members being disabled was well looked after, and even the youngest who managed to 'catch a tree!' Christine came out in the snow to help retrieve lost fly! - Well done, we'll definitely be back when hopefully its a bit warmer!! - All the best. Nick More...

Went up to have a look at this place a week ago. Stunning location and beautifully kept. Everyone was extremely friendly and happy to give tips. Partner and dad spent 2 days fishing this week and came back raving about it. Only caught 1 between them but they both thoroughly enjoyed it and will defiantly be returning. Special thanks to Christine for looking after my boys so well with superb tea making skills. More...

I have taken my 93 year old dad here a few times and it is now one of our favourite places. The owners are so lovely and friendly. Help set my dad up in a safe place they even supplied him a seat and were over the moon that he caught his fish limit even directing us to where they thought he would then brought us both a coffee over. I cannot praise them and the fishery up enough. We're hooked . Nice well kept fishery can't thank them enough. More...

My annual visit to Kingfisher Lake was as good as usual. The water quality was excellent and the fish in splendid condition. Plenty of surface action made the fishing really interesting. My next visit will be sooner than the last even though other venues are closer to me. More...

Fished at Kingfisher today and I can't compliment the place enough.
Christine is so welcoming and is always on hand with a coffee or two. The lake itself is stunning, you can tell that a lot of hard work goes into maintaining it this way. Fishing was excellent, as was the fish. I was spoilt though as I had the lake to myself for the day and managed 14 trout and a C+R ticket.
For anyone who's contemplating visiting, all I say is don't hesitate to call in. You won't find a better, friendlier place to fish for many miles. They have definitely gained another regular!

Kingfisher is a beautiful spot and as close to heaven on earth as you'll find , do yourself a favour if you like fly fishing you'll love this place , I cannot believe there was only myself and one other chap fishing , maybe the bright conditions put people off Anyway you won't here me complaining all the more fish for me !!! :-) Thanks for yet another great day il be back very soon :-)
