Tebay Salmon Planting Out

Members of Keswick anglers assisted Tebay Anglers association with planting out an estimated 10,000 eggs in 25 Scotty boxes. A 4 mile walk to the spawning ground on Bowderdale beck made for a very tiring day.

Jake with Big Perch

Jake Graves ( 13 year old) who is a member of K.A.A  caught this 5lb Perch while fishing for Pike. Unfortunately it was badly hooked and could not be returned. This fish was caught on Derwentwater.

His Smile says it all

Only 5 years old and his first fishing trip. A fine perch caught on the worm on Derwentwater.

Charity Fund Raiser

19 paddleboarders navigated the middle River Derwent on May 28th to raise money for the Save Keswick Hospital campaign. They managed to raise £346. As well as raising money they picked up rubbish along the river banks. A big thank you from K.A.A

Wild Brown Trout

April 3rd. Derwent at Portinscale high and slightly coloured no surface activity but a chance to a couple of tungsten beaded nymphs soon gained the interest of a fair few of these spotties, nice to see so many have weathered the storm.

Litter Pick on River Derwent

Good turnout of people approx 20. We collected 40 bags and 4 dumpy bags of rubbish from Portinscale bridge down river to clay holes. We started at 10.00 am and finished at 1.00 pm. A big thank you to Ian Creighton from W.C.R.T for organizing and arranging the clearance of the rubbish. A good day.


We do not want to discourage people from walking their dogs in the countryside as it has health benefits for both owner and pet, but making sure your dog is on a lead near livestock prevents avoidable attacks and keeps your dog safe too.

Lake Trout on a Dry Fly

Lake trout caught and returned on a dry fly from the K.A.A Derwent fishing below Portinscale. It was spotted taking very small flies on the edge of a back eddy on a bright June day. First drift under the overhanging tree, nose came up and... this was the result. Photo supplied by Eric Hope, Hemmingways [...]
