Fish Eden - Fishing the River Eden in Cumbria and the Lake District

Welcome to Fish Eden - your resource for fishing the River Eden in Cumbria and the Lake District

The Eden Valley is one of Cumbria’s hidden gems and a fishing paradise. This website will provide you with valuable information and local knowledge on where to fish, where to eat and where to stay in the beautiful Eden Valley.

Cumbria has more fishing waters than any other county in England, with the River Eden at its heart. It is considered one of the best salmon rivers in the north of England and holds the record for the largest fly caught salmon in the country. The wild trout provide a real challenge, especially on some of the remote parts of the river, and the abundance of grayling means that you can enjoy fishing the Eden all year round! Coarse anglers can find Chub and Dace on the rivers and Pike, Perch and Roach on the still waters.
The River Eden and its tributaries flow through towns and villages, meadows and woodland, remote farmland and unspoilt countryside, offering a variety of fishing with something for everyone. There’s also plenty of still water fishing on the lakes and tarns, some on the fell tops for the adventurous!

The whole area is protected as a Special Area of Conservation under the EC Habitats Directive and this is reflected in the quality of the fishing.
