The Watch Water has a significant head of perch. As a way of encouraging youngsters into the piscatorial art, a designated zone adjacent the lodge from the dam to the floating boat platform has been allocated as a zone for perch bait fishing. The management committee hope that young aspiring anglers will be brought along by their accompanying relatives to try some perch fishing. Float fishing with small worms is probably the most effective method, and now, like the rainbows and browns elsewhere on the reservoir the perch are feeding particularly well. Families are welcome to come along and enjoy The Watch environment. Please note no dogs are permitted and children must be looked after by an accompanying adult.
