At only 3.6miles or a 10 minute drive lies Esthwaite Water, which is one of the finest trout fishing in the North of England, which is regualrly stocked thoughout the season including being stocked with pike in the winter. The record catch stands at a 39lb 8oz fish being pulled from the water!
The 280 acre lake is scenic and quiet, with deeper basins to the north and south of the lake, which combine with extensive shallows to create a particularly rich and varied fishery.
Facilities at that lake include:
• Bank, Row and Motor Boat fishing (own boat or hire).
• Tackle hire.
• Fishing tuition and guiding service.
• Onsite tackle shop, cafe and toilets.
Permits are avaliable for the day (£25), three days (£62) or a full week (£105)
