LAKE WIN­DER­MERE, LAKE DISTRICT, CUM­BRIA

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Fa­mous for some very large pike to over 30lb, Lake Win­der­mere is one of the largest wa­ters in England. For this rea­son, the fish­ing can be ex­tremely chal­leng­ing, but out in the vast sheet of wa­ter are some qual­ity fish. Huge shoals of roach and perch are present, along with the trout and Arc­tic char the lake was more tra­di­tion­ally known for. There have even been mul­ti­ple sight­ings of carp in ar­eas of the lake. For the vis­it­ing an­gler the best ad­vice is to lo­cate fea­tures such as dropoffs and keep on the move to find the shoals. Trolling with lures is an ef­fec­tive way to en­cour­age the pike to strike or, if the boat is not your thing, pop­u­lar bank fish­ing ar­eas can be found on the western shore of the lake.
