THE RIVER EAMONT
association controls approximately 7.5 miles of mainly double bank fishing.
Eamont, a main tributary of the Eden, is fed from Ullswater Lake. It
flows approximately 12 miles, before joining the River Eden at "Waters
meet", combining on route with the River Lowther.
This is a medium sized river with a more precipitous flow than the Eden.
It has very clear water, with a mainly gravel bottom except in the deeper
pools which collect silt.
upper Eamont is predominantly a trout fishery, whilst the lower sections
also hold some grayling. The trout average ūlb but many larger fish
are caught, 4lb 2oz in 2002 and 4lb 8oz in 2003 and 4lb 5oz in 2007
being the largest in recent years, with several fish over 2lb caught
annually. The record for the Eamont is 8lbs.

5oz Eamont Brown Trout
'Just this quick email to let you know I've break my record last friday

Unfortunately the only day I don't take the camera is the one I do it.
2 other members where close to me when it's happen so you might hear
Of course the fish was released after been weighted by my net.
It's seem to be a good season for big fish as I have caught already
4 fish + or - 3lb and my friend Julien 3.
Hope you have a good season too and THANKS again to run our exceptional
