About River Cocker

Crummock Water is the biggest of three connected lakes in Cumbria that make up the River Cocker. It is about two and a half miles long and half a mile wide.

If you want to fish at Crummock Water, it’s best to do it from a boat using a technique called lochstyle. You can rent a boat, but it only comes with oars so you will have to row a lot to get to good fishing spots, especially on windy days. You can also bring your own boat, but there are no facilities to help you launch it.

There are plenty of places along the shore where you can fish with a fly rod. Just avoid the southern end where the water flows in from Buttermere, as it can be swampy.
