Qual­ity sport in Cum­bria Spec­i­men fish of all species and top ac­com­mo­da­tion

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

CUM­BRIA isn’t blessed with much coarse fish­ing, but this com­plex cer­tainly makes up for that with fish­ing and lodges of the high­est qual­ity.

It’s sit­u­ated on the edge of the Lake District Na­tional Park, and guests stay­ing at Lons­dale have the op­por­tu­nity to fish on five pri­vate lakes in more than 40 acres of un­spoilt coun­try es­tate.

What’s more, each ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tion comes with its own pri­vate pegs, so an­glers can tar­get the venue’s spec­i­men tench, perch and carp for which Lons­dale is renowned.

The com­plex of­fers hol­i­day cot­tages, well-ap­pointed lodges and car­a­vans, so there’s some­thing to suit ev­ery taste and bud­get.

Arches, a lovely two-acre lake abound­ing with fea­tures, is fish­ing re­ally well.

It of­fers ex­cep­tional carp and tench fish­ing, with the av­er­age carp in the high dou­bles and a num­ber of ‘old warhorse’ com­mons and mir­rors thrown into the mix.

There are also some fairly hefty spec­i­men pike to 30lb, plus out­stand­ing roach and perch – with the lat­ter species go­ing to well over 4lb. A spell on Arches is highly rec­om­mended.

A prime tench from Lons­dale Park, Cum­bria.
