Situated in part of the Bodmin Moor Site of Special Scientific Interest we offer free wilderness brown trout fishing for wild fish from the bank. We won’t lie, this venue can be challenging, it’s worth taking the time to walk around the reservoir and spot feeding fish, or creep up and cast around some plant growth. Wading is easy going at Crowdy and allows the angler to explore much more water.
