Cow Green is surrounded by beautiful scenery, an area of outstanding natural beauty and Britain's first European Geopark. Cow Green is also a site of international importance for its rare flora, which is unique to Great Britain. For anglers, nestled within the reservoir are the original upland brownies, one of the finest brown trout populations in England. Descendants from the wild brown trout which lived in the streams before the dam was built.
Full Day Permit £9
NEW Fantastic Four season permit £90 - allows fishing as often as you like at Balderhead, Selset, Cow Green and Blackton
The reservoir is about 2 miles long and is over 500 metres above sea level. It is situated against the dramatic backdrop of Widdybank Fell, and now feeds the torrent of Cauldron Snout, a 200-foot cascade down dolerite steps, which lies below Cow Green Reservoir. To get the best out of this water you need to keep on the move. Brook fishing methods, light tackle with sparsely dressed spider patterns work well. Lighting-fast reflexes, hard fighting brownies with unique colours and markings. These fish are a joy to catch!
