Welcome to Otby lake

Lincolnshire's most natural and challenging trout fishing set in an exclusive and beautiful part of the Wolds - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The setting is like no other in Lincolnshire and compares with any of the well known 'outdoor areas'. The 6 acre lake is spring fed with a gravity fed fountain at the centre. It is stocked regularly with rainbow and brown trout, and fishing is by fly only.

Otby Lake 2017


It is with great regret that I have to inform you that we have decided to close the lake for the entire year. This is to enable us to fundamentally tackle the weed problem and carry out some major works required by the Reservoirs Act, neither of which we can properly do whilst fishing is taking place.

We hope to 'return' much improved in 2018 and will keep you informed of relevant developments.

The cabin is still available for hire for meetings and social events. Please contact me if you have any enquiries.

Wishing you all the best for the coming season and hoping to see you in the future.
