Welcome to Chatton Trout Fishery
Chatton Trout Fishery is owned and run by the Brown family and aims to provide the highest quality trout fly fishing in relaxed, peaceful and friendly surroundings.
Our fishery consists of three lakes; Chatton Lake, Ross Lake, and Dunnydeer Lake, and is situated half a mile from the village of Chatton in picturesque north Northumberland.
We open at 8 a.m. 7 days a week.
All three lakes are stocked twice a week.
We have two aerators on Chatton Lake to ensure ice free fishing over the winter months.
'Chatton Lake' is 4 acres,
'Ross Lake' is approx 3 acres and
'Dunnydeer' is approx 4 acres.
All three lakes are stocked with Tiger, Rainbow, Blue and Brown Trout (all Tiger and Brown Trout must be returned to the lake).
They are all bank fishing lakes with no obstructions for casting.
This is a strictly barbless fishery.
A rod licence is NOT required at Chatton Trout Fishery.
As a big 'thank you' to our anglers we now have 'Loyalty Cards'. After the purchase of six fishing permits the Loyalty Card entitles you to your next visit to the Fishery free of charge.
The tackle shop provides anglers with a selection of all fishing equipment including clothing at very competitive prices. We have a selection of flies, lines, reels and rods etc. We are agents for Greys, Sharpes of Aberdeen, Airflo, the Caledonia Fly Company and many more.

News, Competitions and Fishing Reports
Fish are being caught in the deeper water using lures or blobs. Dry flies with a slow retrieve are working well in the mornings and evenings or when overcast.
A number tiger trout have been caught this week as they appear to be feeding in the margins.
Important to give fish plenty time to recover when being returned to the water.

All three lakes taper from 10ft at the sides down to approximately 22ft to 24ft making it ideal for fish to sit in the deep cooler water when conditions are hot and bright. Since the wet weather we've had fantastic top of the water sport using black shipmans, yellow owls and other various dries. Anglers also having success on buzzers, diawl bachs, pheasant tailed nymphs and lures.
