Salmon have reached the waters of Kirkby Stephen and District Angling Association. A good view for anyone wanting to see some of the fish is to visit Stenkrith Park at the top of K.S and to look over the millenium bridge. This is the farthest point on the eden the salmon can run. Locally called as Cow-Carny it has a waterfall which they try to jump up and quite a long stretch below which they swim regularly. Later in the evening is the best time to see the them. The salmon stay there for some time before dropping back to find spawning beds.
