Scandal Beck: Soulby

Scandal Beck is a tributary of the River Eden. In its upper reaches near Ravenstonedale it is remarkably clean and is a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). Here it supports a population of native crayfish. Kirkby Stephen and District Angling Association have 2 stretches on the beck. The first is a short stretch above Soulby that is probably never fished. The second, more practical stretch runs from Soulby to where the beck joins the River Eden. The best part commences about 100 - 150 yards above Beckfoot but it is very difficult to fish due to steep overhanging banks. The rest of the beck is worth a try, especially well upstream near Soulby village but the fishing appears to have deteriorated in recent years. In the early 1990's some big fish were caught in Scandal Beck but the beck is probably little fished at present. Map
