Cogra Moss Reservoir

SHARE:

Cogra Moss is a wonderful enclosed forest surrounding a reservoir which is now used by the Cockermouth Angling Association. The walk up to the dam is along surfaced tracks. Beyond the dam a number of unsurfaced paths provide the visitor great access around the reservoir in a loop.

For the more adventurous the walk up onto the top of Blake fell is strenuous but provides fantastic views of the northern lake district fells, Scotland, the Solway Coast and Isle of Man.

Cogra Moss is an artificial water retained by a substantial dam across Rakegill Beck, created as a reservoir about 1880, and discontinued as a public water supply in 1975. It has a pleasant setting surrounded on three sides by Forestry Commission planting on Lamplugh Fell and Knock Murton.

Cogra Moss provides an opportunity to fly fish for trout from the bank and natural islands. There are a variety of lies, including gravel and stony beds, sand banks, shallow bays and deeper channels. Waders are recommended. There is a well-established Brown Trout population. Rainbow Trout are stocked monthly throughout the season. A permit is required for fishing on the reservoir, for details click here.
