Whins Pond  
(1)

The area around Penrith is not blessed with many coarse fisheries which means that Whins Pond is a very popular venue for pleasure, match and specimen hunter alike. The fishery comprises a large scenic lake split into two sections by a net. The coarse section covers about 8 acres and has 30 pegs and is well stocked with tench, bream, carp and roach. The fish grow to good size with bream recorded at 14lb and carp to 20lb+. The lake has plenty of features such as overhangi...

Ulverston Canal  

Ulverston canal is the shortest and deepest canal in the country. Constructed in 1796, the canal is just over a mile long and around 60 feet wide. The maximum depth is around 5-6 feet but shallows up towards the edges. It runs from Canal Head at the Ulverston end to Canal Foot on the Leven estuary. Ulverston canal holds carp, bream, tench, roach, crucians, rudd, perch and pike together with whatever else the local kids have kindly released into the 'wild'. Tench are a f...

Dubbs Tarn Reservoir, Windermere  

This is quite a large reservoir to the east of Kendal holding stocked rainbow and brown trout. The brown trout are introduced as fingerlings and grown on fish are regularly taken. The fishing is controlled by the Fisher Tarn Angling Association and is strictly fly only. This is a small club and there is usually a waiting list for membership although limited day permits are available. Stock densities are not high and it does pay to keep on the move and cover new water. Du...

Cogra Moss Fishery, Nr Lamplugh  

Cogra Moss is a 40 acre naturalised reservoir which overlooks the Solway Plain from it's idyllic setting near Lamplugh. This is the best stocked game stillwater in west Cumbria, well managed - and well stocked by Cockermouth Angling Association with good quality rainbows. The average size of the fish is over a pound and a half with a fair sprinkling of larger specimens to 8lbs. Wild brown trout are also present and can reach a good size with fish in the 2-3lb bracket lan...

Lamplugh, CA14 4SH, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Kentmere Fishery, Kentmere, Nr. Staveley.  

This is an exceptionally beautiful fishery comprising of two lakes set in the middle of the unspoilt Kentmere Valley some 3 miles north of Staveley. The smaller lake, East Bay, holds wild browns and stocked browns averaging 2lbs with an occasional larger fish up to 5lbs. The larger lake, which extends to some 10 acres, holds wild browns averaging three quarters of a pound but with much larger specimen fish present - wild brown trout of five pounds were taken on opening d...

Kentmere, LA8, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Burlington Pond  

The game section of Furness Fishing Association contol two fisheries at Roanhead offering fly, spinning and bait fishing for stocked brown and rainbow trout. Both Burlington Lake at 20 acres and Nigel Lake at 10 acres are the flooded remains of the substantial iron ore mining industry that developed around Dalton during the 1800's. While they are not typical of most cumbrian trout waters they do offer very reasonably priced sport close to the population centres of the Fu...

Roanhead, LA14 4, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Coniston Water  

Coniston Water is just over five miles long and a half a mile wide and remains synonomous with the ill fated speed attempt by Donald Campbell and Bluebird. For those who pursue their ambitions at a more moderate pace the lake offers fishing for trout, char, pike and perch. The trout fishing has declined over the years and few anglers now target this species. Similarly the char fishing has fallen away with the result that angling activity on the fishery is now focused on ...

Lake Road, Coniston, LA21 8, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Crummock Water  

Crummock Water is the biggest of the three connected lakes that comprise the River Cocker's basin, measuring about two and a half miles in length and slightly more than half a mile in width. Crummock screams to be fished from a boat, and they are (supposedly) available for rental, but only with oars.This implies a lot of rowing for little fishing, particularly on a windy day with a high probability of excellent sport. Although the National Trust advises that no launching facilities are available...

Buttermere, CA13 9, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Ennerdale Lake  

Longlands Lake is a legacy of West Cumbria's former iron mining industry and did not exist until 1939 - when the ground finally gave way. It lies adjacent to the River Ehen between Cleator Moor and Egremont and is now part of a small country park and public access area managed by Cumbria County Council and provides quiet refuge for both wildlife and humans. The lake itself is managed by Wath Brow and Ennerdale Angling Association who stock the lake regularly with rainbow...

Woodend, CA22 2, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery  

Trout and Pike fishing on Esthwaite Water. Boats for hire and tuition is available. Novice fishermen and day visitors welcome.

Fisher Tarn Reservoir  

This is quite a large reservoir to the east of Kendal holding stocked rainbow and brown trout. The brown trout are introduced as fingerlings and grown on fish are regularly taken. The fishing is controlled by the Fisher Tarn Angling Association and is strictly fly only. This is a small club and there is usually a waiting list for membership although limited day permits are available. Stock densities are not high and it does pay to keep on the move and cover new water. During the summer months al...

Kendal, LA9 6, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Haweswater  

Haweswater is owned by United Utilities who allow free fishing on this water. All you need is your rod licence. The drowned village of Mardale lies beneath the surface of this large and fairly remote reservoir - it's abandoned fields occasionally appearing during periods of drought as rather ghostly reminders of times gone by. In its place is now an excellent wild fishery with a thriving population of perfectly marked brown trout. You will be unlikely to break any record...

Burn Banks, CA10 2, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Haweswater Beck  

This is the smallest of Barrow Angling Clubs three fisheries in the locality but at seventeen acres still a sizeable water. The club stocks with rainbow trout averaging a pound and a quarter with a few bigger fish thrown in for good measure. Poaka is a water supply reservoir and subject to greater fluctuations of level than their other waters. Possibly for that reason it doesn't seem to support quite the same degree of insect life. It can often be a water that responds b...

Ulverston, LA12 0, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Ratherheath Tarn  

Ratherheath Tarn is WADAA's most popular coarse water and holds excellent stocks of carp, roach, bream, tench and perch. The roach and bream fishing can be superb with plenty of skimmers and larger bream in the 5lb - 7lb range. The roach average around 8oz although better fish are present. Tench are generally on the smaller side but fish around the 4lbs mark are beginning to turn up in increasing numbers.Many anglers fish exclusively for Ratherheath's substantial head of ...

Rather Heath Lane, Bonningate, LA8 8, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Red Tarn  

Red Tarn stands as a testimony to the writers and researchers of angling guides who rarely leave the office or venture this far north. From an original entry in an ancient copy of 'Where to Fish' the tarn has found its way into numerous, more recent publications - with scant regard for the poor, misinformed angler who drags his aching limbs in hope to the waters edge. The tarn itself is magnificent - some consolation for the fishing which can be difficult and disappoint...

Ambleside, Cumbria, United Kingdom

River Ehen  

Longlands Lake is a legacy of West Cumbria's former iron mining industry and did not exist until 1939 - when the ground finally gave way. It lies adjacent to the River Ehen between Cleator Moor and Egremont and is now part of a small country park and public access area managed by Cumbria County Council and provides quiet refuge for both wildlife and humans.

River Esk  
(1)

 The fishing is approximately 460 meters of double bank and 950 meters of single bank on the lower reaches of the River Lyne. The River Lyne is a tributary of the River Esk.This water has not been coarse fished for several years and will provide members with an excellent opportunity to catch quality Chub and Grayling.There is ample parking available nearby and easy access.Westlington is situated approximately 3 miles north of Junction 44 of the M6 motorway a...

Westlinton, Carlisle, CA6 6, Cumbria, United Kingdom

River Greta  

Unlike most of the larger lakes Derwent Water is relatively shallow having an average depth of just under twenty feet. In terms of fish production this gives it a significant advantage and the lake carries a higher biomass than most of its counterparts in the region. There are trout present, and some large ones at that. It is still worth a go with the fly from a boat, particularly in the early part of the season and during the mayfly hatch in early June. Afte...

Lake Road, Keswick, CA12 5, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Talkin Tarn  

Talkin Tarn Country Park covers over 180 acres, 65 of which make up the tarn itself. The tarn is up to 42 feet deep and fed by underwater springs. Local rumours say there is a small, submerged town lurking on the lake bed. This is a great location for sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. You can also hire rowing boats or simply go for a leisurely walk in the park’s woodland. It’s over a mile to walk around the tarn, along a good path that’s suitable for wheelchairs. ...

Thirlmere  

Thirlmere is a large and very scenic lake alongside the A591 between Grasmere and Keswick. Helvellyn towers over the eastern shore while to the west conifer plantations dominate the fells. Thirlmere is a water supply reservoir providing Manchester with much of its supplies – with the result that water levels can drop dramatically over a dry summer. However at normal levels the lake is a spectacular wild fishery and for most of the year quiet and undisturbed. The water ...

Keswick, CA12 4, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Tydal Water  

WADAA Membership Grasmere is situated on the eastern side of the A591 Ambleside to Keswick road just before Grasmere village. This small lake is one of the regions best natural coarse fisheries holding prolific shoals of roach, quality perch and big pike. Genuine thirty pound plus pike have been caught in the past and twenty pound fish are caught every year along with good numbers of doubles. The water can fish well throughout the year with summer lure fishing from a boa...

Red Bank Road, Grasmere, LA22 9, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Ullswater  

This beautiful lake is the second largest lake in Cumbria at more than seven miles long and just over half a mile wide. Ullswater holds perch, perhaps an odd pike together with schelly, an endagered and protected whitefish relic from the last ice age. However the only serious pursuit of fish is directed at Ullswater's stock of wild brown trout. The best of the fishing is from March through to late June with the mayfly hatch being the highlight of the relatively short sea...

Glenridding, CA11 0, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Watendlath Tarn  
(8)

This is a natural seven acre tarn just a few miles south of Keswick. Your route to the fishery takes you over Ashness Bridge - the view from here adorns a million fridge magnets and suggests that during the peak holiday season solitude is unlikely. Nevertheless anglers can nearly always find a quiet corner of the water. Outside these times Watendlath offers excellent fishing in nothing less than perfect surroundings. This is the only stocked trout water of any size in th...

Watendlath, CA12 5, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Clawford Fisheries  

Devoke water is one of the smallest lakes in the lake district, but nevertheless is nearly a mile long. The fishing rights are held by Millom Angling Association a day pass can be obtained locally that enables you to fish on two still waters, Devoke water and a nearby reservoir as well as seven sections of nearby river. Tickets can be purchased on a daily or weekly basis which covers all the waters costing £15 per day £75 Per week. ...

Westlinton, Carlisle, CA6 6, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Brotherswater (West Shore)  

A lovely little tarn at the foot of Kirkstone Pass but not of any great angling interest. It does hold trout, small ones, and a few perch and eels but much of the shore is within an SSSI and access is restricted to the wooded western shore. Have a go if you must but probably better to leave this one to the wildlife. Brotherswater is owned by the National Trust. The fishing is free - genearlly a fair indication of how good it is!

Hartsop, CA11 0, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Blea Tarn, Langdale  

There are several 'Blea' tarns amongst the Lakeland fells. This one, which lies between Thirlmere and Borrowdale, is probably the best from an anglers point of view and certainly holds trout of a higher average size than the rest of them - in fact the occasional very good fish is reported from time to time. Unlike the majority of these waters which are more usually found in steep sided corries or at the head of a high valley, Blea Tarn sits on an open ridge with its wate...

Side Gates, Langdale, LA22 9, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Blelham Tarn  

Blelham is an attractive, reed fringed fishery holding mainly pike, perch and roach. The perch and roach can run to a good size but most anglers visit the tarn in search of pike. While these are not numerous, specimens in excess of twenty pounds are present and caught during most years. The fishing on this National Trust water is controlled by WADAA and is reserved for club members with no day permits available. Because of the surrounding reeds and bog access is very limited with only two swims ...
