To ensure the highest quality fishing experience we take a long term view to the management of the fishery. We operate a pure catch and release policy, allowing our stock of Blue, Brown, Rainbow and Tigers to mature to majestic, full finned trout in as natural environment as possible.
New stock is introduced at intervals throughout the year - smaller fish at between 1lb and 2lb - which are encouraged to roam wild and mature into large, feisty Gludy trout, with every chance of taking you down to your backing.
We often exceed a period of over 2 years without a blank day, even for novice anglers, and an average catch rate of 10 fish per angler per day. This is managed through a fine balance of low intensity fishing. We work to a maximum of 10 anglers on the whole lake, ensuring the most enjoyable fishing experience for all.
Catch & Release 'The Gludy Way'
We are extremely proud of the quality of the fish we stock at Gludy lake, so we insist on the fish caught being released with a full recovery whilst being cradled in your hands whilst in the water, until they bolt away ready to fight another day.
Unlike many fisheries, we welcome the use of float tubes at Gludy Lake. We have a tube that guests may use, but you would need to bring your own waders and wading boots.
Fishing guests enjoy exclusive use of the Fishing Lodge's facilities to rest, relax and take refreshments all aimed to enhance the exclusive Gludy experience. This lodge contains kitchen facilities, microwave, fridge, hot & cold water, toilet, lounge area, and dining/fly tying table.
Overlooking the lake adjacent your own boat pontoon area, the lodge offers comfort and a place for any non-fishing members of the party to relax… more>>
We are open all year round - Main season being April, May - No opening times other than first light till dusk.
I have had the pleasure of staying and fishing at Gludy Lake on two different occasions now, both of which were fantastic. Firstly, the lake is wonderful; large, peaceful and to my delight full of very large trout that fight well - I had a great time watching and catching some! Secondly, the lake house is the perfect place to stay and the fire pit and bbq makes an excellent addition. I will definitely be coming back again next year!
