Day Permits

Day permits are available for a number of rainbow trout or pike waters. Permits can either be purchased online or from a number of agents in South Cumbria (listed below). One junior under 16 may fish for free with an adult day permit holder. (If you have two juniors you will need to buy a second permit.)
