About Marton Heath Trout Pools

Marton Heath is a family run fishery where anglers can expect a friendly welcome on arrival at reception.

Whilst the fishery is man-made, great attention to conservation is evident, with trees, hedges and a wildflower plantings supplementing the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. There is always something interesting to see, as Pheasants, songbirds, waterfowl and a world of insects and butterflies, catch your attention whilst you fish.


Personal tuition or group clinics can be arranged with one of our qualified S.T.A.N.I.C. instructors. Phone 01260 224231 for details or speak directly to the instructor, Andrew on 07736 453873 or visit the website
