About Penshurst Park Trout Fishery
Penshurst Park fishery is run by the members for the members and a friendly welcome is offered to all. For those who would like to be more involved we have working parties throughout the year to carry out light maintenance to the areas around the lakes, this is a good chance to meet other members and of course offer and receive tips on fly fishing.
The Fishery is set in the grounds of the 2,500 acre Penshurst Estate. The manor house was built in 1341 by Sir John de Paulteney, it was later owned by Henry V111. In 1552 Henrys son King Edward V1 granted the estate to Sir William Sidney, the family have been in continuous occupation in the Manor house for more than 460 years. The picturesque village of Penshurst owes its existence to the Penshurst Estate.
We offer two dedicated fly fishing lakes which have a surface are of water of approximately one and two acres. The lakes were originally built as carp lakes to supply fresh fish for the estate. The lakes have been sympathetically landscaped and offer numerous positions for easy casting. The larger lake is both stream and spring fed with islands that enhance the environmental and scenic aspect which are a sanctuary for local wildlife. The smaller lake is entirely spring fed with an abundance of insects and fly life.
Fly fishing at Penshurst Penshurst park fishery is for members only, we do not offer daily pay to fish facility. Membership numbers are limited allowing us to offer uncongested banks and offer an exclusive fishing experience in a country setting in the midst of the Penshurst Estate.
We stock the lakes from the Berkshire Trout Farm ; Their farm is river fed and they have consistently provided us with excellent quality, strong, hard fighting fish.
All levels of ability are welcome and there are always experienced members willing to share their knowledge of the waters.
