There are endless opportunities to enjoy fishing in the Lake District. Many of our rivers hold good stocks of brown trout, salmon and sea trout. Several of the larger lakes are particularly good for their pike and coarse fishing. Much of the fishing within the National Park is controlled by local Angling Associations.
