Historically the reservoirs are known for their silver fish Roach, Bream and Perch with a good head of Pike to specimen size. There are no Carp known in either reservoir. There are also odd Tench caught from time to time. The reservoirs are Coarse Fishing Waters although trout are present having come down from the reservoir above. Any Brown Trout caught must be returned.
