Danson Lake is home to a great range of coarse fish, including large Carp, Dace, Perch Roach, Rudd, and Tench.

We offer fishing day permits from the Centre for people who have a rod licence.

As well as bank fishing, there are several platforms available that are also suitable for disabled users and give full access to the water's edge.
