Private Fishing on the River Eden

Season: January 15th - October 14th
Season: June 16th - March 14th
Season: March 15th - September 30th

The River Eden is a Prolific Salmon river, and one that is often overlooked by those travelling to some of the better documented Salmon rivers of Scotland.

There are fish in the system all year round, and the stocks of Spring fish or early running fish are most certainly on the increase allowing anglers to indulge in their chosen sport knowing that the possibility of catching one or more of these magnificent creatures is a distinct possibility.

Fly fishing and Spinning is available and both methods take their fair share of fish throughout the season on differing water levels and conditions.

Salmon fishing on the Eden is very popular so it is advisable to make your booking well in advance.

The Grayling to be found on the River Eden are both widespread and in many instances of very high quality, with fish regularly taken over 2 lb on the fly rod.

This type of fly fishing is growing in popularity, one of the main reasons for this is the fact that it extends the fly fisherman's season throughout the Winter months, thus offering no reason whatsoever to pack away your fly rod until the trout season begins once again.

Popular and very successful techniques used on the river are Czech Nymphing and spider fishing, and with the much higher temperatures we often experience later in the year, which does effect several things, Grayling regularly visit the surface and proceed to take these North Country offerings

Brown trout need no introduction to the regular angler, but the River Eden has an abundant amount of Wild Brown Trout throughout the system offering offering great opportunities to both experienced anglers and beginner alike.

These Brown trout can be caught readily throughout the season, but I must admit that early season does throw up some quality fish, when these wild fish re-appear from the rigours of their winter spawning, with a lets eat everything attitude.

Like many other rivers, Sea Trout have declined on the Eden over recent years, although there are still areas where a little intensive night fishing can throw up some good sport in the Summer months. The Sea Trout season runs from April 1st - September 30th

Bessy Beck Trout Fishery


Bessy Beck Trout Fishery is situated at the foot of the Howgills near to the Lake District and Yorkshire dales where the fish farm produces some of the best rainbow trout in Cumbria. The fishery has angling for all abilities with easy and safe access. The Island Lake provides a challenge for the experienced fly fisherman, with trout stocked from 2lb to 15lb it is the only lake where catch and release is allowed.

Onyer Marks are a fleet of three charter boats that provide both bait fishing and fly fishing for several species. These charter boats are owned by Ian Burrett who is very much into the conservation of all species and promotes the return of fish, but don't let this put you off especially if you are a keen fly fisher as the Pollock fishing on the fly can be exciting. If you are interested I can recommend an excellent guide who will supply all tackle.

Chris Bowman provides a professional service for both the dedicated coarse angler and the beginner alike. He is a member of the (PAA) Professional Anglers Association and as well as running his own fishery, he also has access to some good specimen waters and is most definitely worth contacting for a very enjoyable day's coarse fishing.
