Sea Trout Fishing on the Lune
The River Lune is begins at Wath, in the parish of
Ravenstonedale, Cumbria, at the confluence of Sandwath Beck
and Weasdale Beck. The river then flows 44 miles through

northern part between its source and Tebay is called
Lunesdale, which is followed by the spectacular Lune Gorge
and finally Lonsdale, where the valley broadens. The Lune is
tidal below Skerton Weir in Lancaster. The River Lune
