Year around Trout fishing for all at Bessy Beck
The lakes have been established for a number of years and have a varied fly life and they are suitable for any form of fly fishing. They are stocked from our rearing facility at Bessy Beck with Triploid Rainbow trout and blue trout.
The Island Lake (catch and release an option)
This lake is for the experienced angler and is stocked with fish up to 15lbs
The Mallard Lake (all fish must be taken)
This lake is perfect for the inexperienced or novice angler, for tuition and corporate days.
We specialise in instant fish and instant fishermen.
The Heron Lake (all fish must be taken)
On the Heron Lake any method is allowed with the exception of fly fishing. Great for children and families.
We have a fishing lodge that is heated by a pot belly stove which makes it a warm place to be even on the coldest of days. There is ample parking with male and female toilets on site. There is a Tackle shop for all game angling requirements and a Farm shop where our fish products can be purchased.
Bessy Beck is closed to the general public on Mondays and Tuesdays, however season tickets/rods are available on those days.
Days are still available for 2012 on Tuesdays.
Day Tickets for the upper Lune can be purchased at Bessy Beck and guided fishing or tuition can be arranged. Tebay Angling Association has some beautiful water from where the Lune is little more than a burn to deep salmon holding pools.
