Registered fish farm
New Mills Trout Fishing Park is a registered fish farm [CEFAS] and specialises in the restocking of lakes with triploid rainbow trout for fishing syndicates.
Our trout are well known for their lean, hard fighting, full tailed appearance, making them a true favourite with the discerning angler. What’s more, they are reared in our stream fed holding tanks and fed only the best, most nutritious feed, making our trout some of the tastiest you will ever have eaten!
We are official
New Mills Trout Fishing Park are proud to announce that since 2012 we have been an official Troutmasters Water.
Troutmasters is the largest trout fishing competition in Europe, involving the ordinary, non-match angler (age 14 or over). Anyone catching a giant Rainbow, Blue, Tiger or Brown at New Mills can register for the competition and be entered into our annual fish-off, the winner of which will then be entered into the exciting national final at Grafham Water.

Stopped here for a light lunch and we were thrilled with what we found. Beautifully kept. Perfect setting. The food was superb, and very efficiently served by great staff. We will be back. (Can't vouch for the fishing, but there were certainly plenty of people having a go!)

Fly fished here a few times now & always had an excellent day, there's some big fish in here to tempt you, also a smaller lake for kids to fish, great tackle shop with advice on flies, rods, clothing & techniques etc to try, also a brilliant cafe to get hot or cold food & drinks which is well appreciated. Great time, every time !!
