River Eden: Warcop

This fishery is downstream of Warcop Old Bridge. It is a joint fishery shared with Appleby Angling Association with different rules to our own waters. There is an attractive weir pool immediately below the bridge but the rest of the stretch is mainly deep, slow flowing and somewhat featureless. Below the first field it is very difficult to fish as there are steep banks, continuous trees and barbed wire that restrict access to the water. Fly fishing here is virtually impossible. Note that this joint water often contains large numbers of stock fish (12 - 14oz) early in the season introduced by Appleby Angling association. These fish are easy to catch at this time. Subsequently many of these fish stray far upstream to Ploughlands, Musgrave and beyond. Map
