Cockermouth, CA13 0, Cumbria, United Kingdom

This small lake is the final member of the trio that form the catchment of the River Cocker - and the only one of the western lakes that drains to the east. The surroundings have a softer, more pastoral feel about them and Loweswater still remains relatively untouched by tourism.
Loweswater always had a reputation for large trout, many of which were taken during the once prolific mayfly hatch Sadly, it seems both the large trout and the prolific mayfly have both had their day as this small lake has become another victim of the all too familiar pattern of enrichment and eutrophication.
Although a few trout probably hold on it is now coarse fish that predominate and the angling focus has shifted very much to the pike population. In the main these are smaller fish averaging around six pounds but there is always the chance of a better fish in amongst them.
The fishing on Loweswater is controlled by the National Trust and permits are available from Mrs Leck at Waterend Farm
Day permits are £8.00 and cover Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater together with a short stretch of the River Cocker. Weekly permits at £30.00 and season permits at £60.00 are also on offer.
