Fishing Holidays in Lancashire
Moss Wood is the ideal base for a fishing holiday. From coarse fishing to fly fishing, there are enough lakes and rivers in Lancashire to keep even the most avid angler satisfied. We even have our very own coarse fishing lake to try before you explore any other fishing spots in the area.
To help give you a taste of what Lancashire has to offer, we’ve rounded up five of the best fisheries, all of which are less than 30 minutes away from Moss Wood.
Forest Hills Fly Fishing
Fly fishing fans will love this peaceful fishery, which sits in serene woodland on the edge of the beautiful Forest of Bowland. Here, you can try your hand at lake and river fly fishing, from both the jetty and the bank. What’s more, the 4-acre lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout, not to mention the occasional tiger, brown and blue.
The fishery is open all day, and has toilet facilities and free car parking. To learn more, click here.
