At the moment angling is not a permitted activity. Therefore, until further notice we should all refrain from fishing. This is about saving lives and supporting the NHS.
The Angling Trust has been in contact with the Government regarding its view on fishing as a permitted activity and hopes to provide an update shortly.
Please note access to the River Greta is severely restricted due to the Keswick to Threlkeld railway path works. Please check the maps at the railway access points.
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 brown trout, together with angling for wild salmon and sea trout. Mixed and coarse fishing for 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.
