Casterbridge Fisheries is proud to sell day tickets to fly fish the waters of the Dorchester Fishing Club on the River Frome.
The waters hold a good head of wild trout as well as grayling below Dorchester. Although trout are not stocked on a regular basis the Managing Committee review the position from time to time and restock with brown trout as circumstances permit.
During the early spring days the Club is blessed with some astounding hatches of Grannom and as the weather improves these are joined by Blue Winged Olive’s, falls of Hawthorn Fly and Black Gnat. Towards the end of May early June the Mayfly appears, bringing the larger fish to the surface. After the Mayfly and until the end of the season, there is always the evening fall of spinners and sedges, during the day fish can still be found rising to hatching Pale Watery’s and Blue Winged Olives.
Brown Trout fishing: 1st April to 14th October
The Club does issue day tickets during the trout season, only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays & Bank Holidays, but not during mayfly season (16th May – 15th June) when the water is reserved exclusively for members. (maximum 45 per year).
