WADAA Coarse Membership provides access to a wide range of excellent coarse fisheries accross South Cumbria - all of them in exceptionally scenic locations and offering the full range of angling opportunities for all coarse species. WADAA's coarse fisheries are strictly reserved for members. They offer a quieter, more exclusive angling experience for anglers who prefer to get away from the crowds.
Ratherheath Tarn and Cleabarrow Tarn are well managed stocked waters They hold excellent stocks of carp, specimen tench and large bream along with roach, rudd and perch. The carp fishing is superb with Ratherheath Tarn in particular developing into Cumbria's top carp fishery. Overnight fishing is available on Cleabarrow Tarn which, as well as some lovely carp is noted for its exceptional tench fishing with specimens over 8lbs taken regularly each year.
Grasmere, Rydal Water and Blelham Tarn are noted pike waters which are all capable of producing 20lb plus fish. Although these waters are generally fished for pike they are less commonly fished for the specimen perch and roach that are present in substantial numbers.
