Embsay reservoir

Situated right on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Embsay reservoir is a premier trout water with crystal clear water water, unbeatable panoramic views and more importantly, a good stock of quality fish. Well worth investigating.


Whinny Gill reservoir

A great place to while away the hours. Nestled under the moor side on the South East side of Skipton, its hard to believe this tranquil reservoir is only a mile or so from the town centre. Sit and listen to the cry of cock pheasants, curlews and peregrines whilst you wait to hook in to that monster fish.


Leeds Liverpool Canal

From Niffany Bridge (175) to Belmont Bridge (178) including the basin in the town centre and full length of the springs branch, the canal offers some fantastic mixed bags of roach, perch, bream, gudgeon, ruffe, and of course pike even the occasional brown trout.


River Aire

There's never a dull moment on the river you can be battling with huge pike, hooked in to that personal best grayling or simply hooked in to that overhanging willow, again. (Note to self, learn how to cast properly). The Aire is a tranquil retreat to loose yourself to the joys of angling.
