Naseby Reservoir

At 93 acres in area when full, Naseby is one of our largest reservoirs.

Naseby Reservoir was built to supply water to the Grand Union Canal Leicester line. Its feeder stream supplies water to the Welford Arm in Welford village, some two miles away from Naseby.

Naseby is well stocked with the Fishers Pond strain carp to approaching 40lb, with a typical-sized fish being in the range of 8lb to 30lb. There's also a huge head of roach, which are often shoaled up on the dam wall. A haul of 50lb-plus of silvers is not unknown.

When the water is high after a wet winter, the dam wall platforms are your best bet for accessible pegs and these are often hotspots for winter pike fishing. Naseby has produced pike to over 30lb in the past. In the summer and autumn the water levels drop and you can fish from the reservoir bed, which is mostly made of gravel.
