Dacre Beck


Penrith, Cumbria CA11 0HJ, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Dacre Beck has its waters on the northern slope of Gowbarrow Fell and flows north past Ulcat Row, picking up streams along the way from Lowthwaite and Matterdale End. It then travels through a valley that is bounded on one side by Great Mell Fell and on the other by Little Mell Fell, and at Thackthwaite it turns eastward.

At Hutton, the beck joins forces with additional streams, one of which travels south from Berrier and goes via Beckces on its way to Penruddock. From this vantage point, Dacre Beck may be seen winding its way through the historic community of Dacre.

Because it is a little stream, rather slow flowing, very clear, and shallow, the truly wild trout that it contains can be very easily startled on occasion; therefore, subtlety and patience are the keys to success while fishing in this stream.
