Knockaderry Reservoir is located 12km southwest of Waterford City, just off National Route N25. It holds a native stock of wild brown trout and is also stocked occasionally with brown and rainbow trout by the Fisheries Board.

Knockaderry Reservoir is a relatively shallow lake of approximately 70 aces. A native stock of beautiful slender wild brown trout exists in the lake. These are supplemented by periodic stocking with brown and rainbow trout from the Fisheries Boards’ trout farms to cater for angling demands.

Since this is a very good quality fly fishery angling is limited to fly fishing from boat only. Shore fishing from the bank is now allowed as the shore access has been improved.

Open season runs from 1 March until 30 September.
