If you are interested in Coarse fishing for species like Carp, Bream, Tench, Roach, Perch or Rudd then you can become a member of the J.F.A.A. and gain access to fish such venues as Millbrook and Danemarche Reservoirs in Waterworks Valley, the Les Mielles Golf Complex, St Ouen’s Pond and St Catherine’s Reservoir. All these waters hold a good supply of fish and some large specimen’s like Bream are over 10lb in weight and Carp to 20lb will tax even the best angler and are a thrill to catch. The Coarse fishing season runs annually from January through to December.TROUT FISHING

Trout fishing is well catered for in the Island and the fly fisher can make use of both Val De La Mare Reservoir and the upper and lower parts of Queen’s valley Reservoir. There are a number of boats available for the fly fisherman. All fishing is fly fishing only and some of the membership tie their own special creations. There is even a fly called the “Jersey Herd”.The reservoirs are stocked annually with all fish being reared locally by the JFAA and all member are encouraged and welcome to view the full Trout rearing process. Fish are generally stocked in the 3 – 4lb range and we have a few 8lb plus monsters in the reservoirs as well.
