AboutHolbury Lakes Trout Fishery covers 40 acres of Test Valley countryside, and has been described as "the best-kept secret in Hampshire".
It includes four lakes totalling 7-1/2 acres, each with its own character; it also has 700 yards of fishable banks of the River Dun, a tributary of the Test. The average depth of the lakes is 2+ metres (around 7 feet), and they are kept well stocked with rainbow and blue trout, plus some brown trout. The River Dun is stocked with brown trout only, and has a good head of wild fish.
The waters and banks are all lovingly cared for, and the mature trees around the waters make this one of the most attractive fishing spots you'll find anywhere. With the Fishery Office (by the car park), the fishing huts and fishing Barn, there's plenty of shelter available; and the fishing barn also has washing and lavatory facilities. Free coffee and tea are available at the fishery office or the fishing barn.
