Leighton Reservoir is a 105 acre, fly-only bank fished reservoir, stocked with Rainbow Trout from the nearby Swinton Trout Farm. It is located in stunning scenery with fabulous views, surrounded by the moorland dales, just a few miles from Masham. The reservoir is a Trout Masters water with a number of fish over 10lbs caught every year.
Swinton Trout Farm is situated on the River Burn, a tributary of the River Ure which is only three miles from Leighton Reservoir. Trout are reared at the farm and then transferred to the reservoir. The fish in the farm are used to the same peaty, slightly acidic water of the reservoir, which leads to their easy and healthy transfer.
