Fishing on the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is an ideal destination for a fishing holiday, the visiting angler is very well catered for. Most styles of sea and freshwater angling can be done on or around the Island. For freshwater anglers, ponds, reservoirs and streams hold most species including trout, carp, perch, rudd and roach

The sea angler has 64 miles of coastline available for beach and rock fishing, with bass, conger, plaice and rays, to name but a few, that can all be taken in season

For the visiting boat angler, the English Channel and the more sheltered Solent provides huge scope, whether from your own boat or a charter trip. Lake or pier/shore fishing tuition is also available

Nearly all the sea and freshwater fish that can be found in UK waters are represented on the Island’s record lists
