 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 at Carlisle, on the A7 Carlisle to Longtown Road.On entering Westlington on the A7 proceed through the village and over the road bridge where there is a lay-by on the right providing parking just across from the access point. Big Waters members now have access to coarse fishing on these stretches of the River Lyne near Westlington Bridge,  courtesy of the Tyne Anglers Syndicate. All members can fish this water outside the game seasons, but only 3 members at a time can fish during the game season  and members should phone the secretary to book a place.http://www.bigwatersanglingclub.dreamstation.com/RiverLyne.htm

Did not know of grayling in the lyne and ive lived near it nearly all my life, there isnt any gudgeon or perch either. The river was a great chub and dace river back in the 70's, 5lb chub common, most of the chub and dace were taken out in the 80's/90's and the river has suffered because of it, there are brown and sea trout with a small run of salmon. as for coarse fish, this stretch may have survived as it was looked after by a coarse angling club, the rest of the lyne is a shadow of its former self as some locals dont like having skellies because they cant eat them and they tought that they ate all the trout, if anybody looks at the rest of the lyne they will find out there isent many trout left either, so messing with nature for the narrow minded trout fans made a big loss for everybody.
