Keswick Anglers Association (KAA) has wonderful fishing set in some of
Cumbria's most beautiful scenery. The Rivers Greta and Derwent offer superb,
affordable fly fishing for native and stocked brown trout, together with
angling for wild salmon and sea trout. Mixed and coarse fishing for native
pike, lake trout, perch and other species is available on Derwentwater Lake
surrounded by magnificent fells dominated by the well known peak of Skiddaw.
KAA which was established over 100 years ago, takes a keen interest in making
sure that angling continues to be enjoyed in this part of the Lake District by
both residents and visitors. We have an active juniors section, fly tying
courses, fly fishing tuition and run the only hatchery on the Derwent
catchment. Our members get involved in habitat improvement schemes and keep in
touch with other angling associations, riparian owners, environmental and park
authorities. There is a members exchange ticket arrangement with most of
Cumbria's other angling associations.
