Fontburn is where Trout fishing began for me about 20 years ago and since then have been 'hooked' ever since! The fishing has changed over the years in many ways for instance the introduction of 'powerbait' is currently the way to fish and the humble fly fisher seems to have taken a backseat. The fish quality has fluctuated too over the years but has in my opinion become much better the couple of years. simple tactics work best for me using a running ledger rig with hook snood from between 6 to 15 inches being the optimal in conjunction with powerbait for bait. There is a area for disabled anglers however not big enough in my opinion, however you don't have to walk far to get a spot to fish. Both sides fish equally well but do differ on certain days so do ask the on duty bailiff which side they would recommend. The shop no longer sells rod license so purchase before you go only takes 5 mins online to do so.
