Blithfield Anglers is a trout fishery on Blithfield Reservoir, close to the village of Abbots Bromley in the heart of rural Staffordshire.

Following a challenging 10 day period the reservoir exploded back to life with a bang on Thursday 21st August when both weather conditions and water clarity improved in favour of quality angling. Catch returns for the day included a 4lb Rainbow caught by A Esplin and several specimen Rainbows of between 3lb and 3lb 8ozs. The rod average also improved with good returns by Peter Gilman, Andrew Esplin, Alan Miles and Pat Burton who between them recorded 20 fish! The cooler conditions are forecast to continue for the remainder of August promising excellent sport.
Blithfield hosts a number of competitions annually for both bank and boat anglers. We have a fleet of 42 powered boats and 11.4 miles of bank as well as excellent lodge facilities. Competition fees are offered at a discounted rate and are based on the number of entries. For further details contact Blithfield Anglers on 01283 840284 or e-mail
