We manage five premier fishing locations across Furness.
Barrow Angling Association has fishing for stocked brown and rainbow trout on Poaka Beck, Pennington, Harlock and Ireleth reservoirs. We also control the fishing on Cavendish Dock situated in Barrow itself. The Dock is now primarily a carp water. Fishing on all the trout waters is restricted to members of BAA and their guests. However, Cavendish Dock is open to Season Ticket holders and their guests. Also dawn to dusk day tickets are available and may be purchased from the bailiffs on the bank.
A stunning fishing location just north of the small village of Marton, well-stocked with rainbow trout.
A large 20 acre reservoir, this water is situated just to the west of Ulverston and is stocked annually with brown trout.
A small fishery, comprised of two small ponds, north east of Ireleth. This water is stocked with rainbow trout.
Again, this water is primarily a rainbow trout fishery and is situated to the North of the hamlet of Loppergarth.

Hugh Harrison and Gordon Delves (pictured fishing at a recent Open[…]
