Fontburn Reservoir in Northumberland is one of the Northumbria fishing venues shared by both game and coarse anglers alike. At 87 acres there is plenty water to share by those seeking to beat the fishery rainbow trout record of 26lb. The Dam wall is a popular spot due to the plentiful catches one can expect when using the ever popular Dawsons Olive or Cats Whisker.
Fontburn Reservoir is set in a beautiful corner of Northumberland close to the Simonside Hills and is open from March to November. Stocked with both Browns and Rainbows, Fontburn Reservoir is not the most popular venue in the north east but is well worth a visit – as long as it isn’t windy.
