River Eamont, March 21st - photos.

Being stationed mainly in Cumbria at the moment, I decided to take advantage of the slightly earlier opening to the river trout season (March 15th as opposed to the 25th in Yorkshire) and ventured out for an exploratory trip on the River Eamont, an Eden tributary where I had watched salmon frantically charging about on the redds last November, near where it leaves Ullswater. The water was achingly cold and i didn't get so much as a tweak all day! Still, it was lovely to be out.

Dacre Beck again.

The Eamont here is run by Penrith Anglers, who also have water on the Eden, Lowther, and a bunch of small streams to boot. Day tickets for visitors are available at £15 a pop, which is good value considering the amount of water you get to choose from.
