About us

The site of Ellerdine Lakes was first developed in September 2000 by Edward and Jayne Upton. Now a thriving business and favoured location for many, Ellerdine is regarded as the best trout fishery in Shropshire.

If you are a beginner or would just like to brush up on your fly fishing skills, we offer fly casting tuition. Winter fly tying courses are also available. Please call or email us for further information. Group bookings are welcome.

Marsh Lake

The lakes at Ellerdine

We have four well-established spring-fed lakes here at the Ellerdine Lakes Trout Fishery: Cranymoor, Lakemoor, Meadow and Marsh. Each lake has its own individual character, but all are well stocked with Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout Blue Trout, Sparctic trout Char and even a few Atlantic Salmon providing an excellent day of fishing. The average size is 3lbs but much larger fish up to 20lb are caught daily.

The lakes which have been designed for ease of casting. At Ellerdine Lakes we believe that everyone should enjoy a good day's fishing, and so we have provided disabled access to each of our lakes. Areas in close proximity around much of the lakes have been cleared of obstacles enabling wheelchair access as close as possible to the waterside. We also provide a disabled toilet in our on-site facilities.
