Dam, Derwent Reservoir
Dam, Derwent Reservoir
The three mile long Derwent Reservoir was built in 1967 and is the second largest reservoir in Northumberland. The dam took six years to build, used three quarters of a million bricks and cost 5.5 million. The dam holds back the River Derwent and allows the reservoir to fill with 11,000 million gallons (50,000 litres) of water.

Three miles of the south shore are available for both multi-bait and fly fishing, whilst the north shore is fly fishing only. Fishing is from the bank with wading allowed to thigh depth. There is no boat fishing. The fish are mainly stocked from Northumbrian Waters own fish farm. There is a weekly stocking of rainbow and blue trout (twice weekly during summer months). The reservoir also enjoys stocks of brown trout and competition tiger trout.
