The River Kent starts
its life in Kentmere Reservoir in the valley of Kentmere.
The Kent is one of the fastest flowing, spring run Rivers in the country. As the River flows through the countryside, there are some beautiful views, scenes of weirs and waterfalls. Wild life is abundant, a variety of birds including Kingfishers, squirrels, river habitat and otters are all to be seen. Some Anglers take time out to paint or sketch the scenery to take the memory home!
Please remember that the footpaths leading to our Fisheries are private together with the actual Fisheries. They are not open to the general public.

A typical Kent Salmon would be between 4-8 pounds but in recent years Catch Returns have shown fish being taken up to 20 pounds in weight.
Sea Trout start running the lower reaches of the River around May with some good sport in July and August. They average between 2-4 pounds with bigger fish taken up to 10 pounds from time to time.
