Riverdale Fishery

Formerly known as the Kilgad Fishery. So far the vast majority of anglers visiting the fishery have been using small dry flies, buzzers or nymphs on floating lines, although there are some who continue to use big lures, all in pursuit of rainbow trout up to 10lb with an average weight of 2.5-3lb. 

The heaviest fish so far was estimated at 10lb and returned to fight another day.

The lake is weed free and there is easy access around the lake so casting a fly is relatively snag free.

Restrictions: Fly-fishing only.

Permits available at the fishery.
