Angling at the reservoir is controlled by the Tata Game Angling Association, a friendly and very welcoming club of around 100 members that celebrated its 50th year in 2016. The club welcomes anglers of all abilities and is keen to promote fly fishing to all. Tickets are now available online, from the Fishing Passport.
