Meeting to discuss Lake District water quality
Bookmark and Share
A meeting of experts is being held to discuss measures to preserve and enhance the environment around the national park's 20 largest lakes.

The seventh annual conference of the Lake District Still Waters Partnership on February 26th will discuss the matter of water quality, both in the lakes and the surrounding vicinities.

Lakes manager John Pinder commented: "Although our work focuses on major lakes, we look at the influence of management in the wider catchment, including farming, forestry and recreational use."

The meeting will hear from experts discussing the EU Water Framework Directive, which Mr Pinder noted is the first lake water quality protection legislation to emerge from Europe.

Good water quality may boost those heading up to the Lakes District with their fishing rods.

Among the places people can enjoy lake fishing is Esthwaite Water near Hawkshead.

The Esthwaite Water trout fishery states that the lake not only offers trout but also claims to offer the best pike fishing in the north-west of England.
