About Balderhead Reservoir

Balderhead Reservoir is a reservoir in Baldersdale, County Durham, England. It is one of four of the very best wild brown trout fisheries in the UK that we have in the stunning Teesdale countryside. Surrounded by the fantastic scenery of the North Pennine grouse moors, there are few more tranquil and relaxing ways to spend a day’s fishing than roaming the banks of these waters, and even fewer places where you can catch truly wild browns.
