The fishery is situated in an attractive woodland valley on the Duke of Norfolk’s Estate at Arundel, West Sussex. Although only a few minutes from the centre of the town, with its distant view of the cathedral, it provides an ideal and tranquil venue for fly fishing with crystal clear water.
Originally two lakes, Chalk Springs was created in 1984 on the site of old watercress beds. The many changes to the fishery and fish-farm over the years, including the addition of two more lakes in 1986, have helped to make Chalk Springs one of the premier small stillwater trout fisheries in England.
The fishery has about five acres of water and is fed by natural springs, helping to keep the lakes cool and crystal clear throughout the year. The excellent clarity of the water offers fishermen a unique opportunity to stalk high-quality brown and rainbow trout that are stocked daily into the fishery. Chalk Springs now has the reputation as one of the finest stillwater trout fisheries in the South of England.
