DERWENTWATER, WINDERMERE & RIVER DERWENT

‘Derwent’ derives from the Celtic expression, ‘river with oak trees,’ and the River Derwent is no exception to the rule.

The Cumbrian Derwent rises up near Scafell , then runs into Derwentwater before being joined by the Greta in Keswick. Beyond there it flows through Bassenthwaite Lake and down to the sea at Workington.

Derwentwater, immediately south of Keswick, is the third largest lake by area in the Lake District, after Windermere and Ullswater. It is nearly 3 miles long and over 1 mile wide. Its primary inflow and outflow is the River Derwent. A brilliant fishing venue though it may be, its attraction to many is for its scenic value and its wooded fells are criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways for the enjoyment of all.

 

DERWENTWATER, WINDERMERE & RIVER DERWENT WITH ERIC HOPE NEW

 

Eric Hope and his team have been fishing the Lake District for over thirty years; it would be hard to find a group who know Derwentwater, Windermere and the rivers of Cumbria better.

There is a huge variety of species in the lakes from which to choose with wild brown trout, pike or perch all caught from the boat. Salmon, brown trout, sea trout and grayling are more typically caught on the rivers.

Tuition is an option for beginners who are always welcomed, along with children plus anyone returning to fishing after a few years away from the water. Tackle and flies are provided.
