The aim of this pilot study was to obtain baseline data on charr that spawn in Smithy Beck and the River Liza. This would indicate the current status of the population and help identify areas requiring further investigation. Ennerdale charr are known to ascend two tributaries which drain into Ennerdale Water (the River Liza and Smithy Beck), over a 10-14 day period to spawn. This occurs during November and takes place at night. The fish are believed to return to the lake during the day.
