If you are talking about Windamere, then yes why not. It's a noted Yellowbelly dam, also has a few silver perch. I've always found it pure hard work, but I think it's very dependent on conditions. I'd take the rods :)

Yellowbelly and cod are edible. They are extremely fatty from Windamere due to shear size of most of the fish that come from there though.

Hi Scott, I wouldn't dream of eating Yellas or Cod from Windamere as they taste terrible when TOO FAT. Good fun to catch and release though. bn
