If fishing floats your boat then Lincolnshire offers all types of angling for all anglers of all abilities, from novice to expert, with many fisheries, venues and opportunities to catch fish.

Coarse Fishing

Coarse fishing is very popular in Lincolnshire and events are held through-out the year on well stocked commercial waters, rivers and canals with many species of fish to be caught.

Carp Angling

Carp anglers will be pleased to know that some of our waters are home to double figure and specimen carp. Pike anglers will love the waters of the Lincolnshire fens; they hold some massive fish and come into their own during the autumn and winter months.

River Angling

If you’re into river angling you have a choice of Lincolnshire rivers such as the Witham, Welland, Steeping, Ancholme, Bain, Great Eau and Glenn to name a few. The rivers in Lincolnshire hold a variety of coarse fish that include Bream, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Tench, Chub, Carp, Pike and Zander.
