Bream, roach, tench, perch and pike inhabit Elton Reservoir Bury, though I’m not sure how many people fish it these days, by all accounts its not the water is once was even following a refurbishment in 2009, when the environment agency removed all the fish whilst there works were done and then restocked them. Once a bream mecca, this large bowl of a water, sounds like it has not recovered to its fishing heyday. If anyone fishes it these days can they email me please with details admin@fishinginlancashire.co.uk and i will update this entry.

As you will see in these photographs (May 2016) its short on water at the moment and as we approach summer I can only imagine this will get worse, Same really i can imagine it would be a nice please to fish from the sandy bank side when the ware level is at a more normal level
