New Fishery Available

For next season starting 25th March 17, Wetherby Angling Club are entering into an exciting partnership with Ilkley Angling Association where limited numbers of members of both clubs (two per day) can fish each others waters for free. All relevant info is in the new yearbook.

Also we will be rejoining the Boothferry Aire and Calder Amalgamation next season (June 1st) which will give us approx. 11 miles of fishing on the Aire and Calder Navigation canal between the village of Heck right down to Goole. More information will be added to the new yearbook.

Collingham Church Field

Hi everyone,

 Please be aware that due to a change in ownership of the field next to Collingham Church there is no fishing or bank access along the rivers edge of this field for club members. To gain access from the top to bottom lengths or vice versa, you will have to use the public footpath along Collingham beck. The new owner has erected signs to confirm this.

More fish stocked

We have stocked a thousand chub into the Grange Park section yesterday - 11/2/16.

Fish stocked

We have stocked a thousand dace and bream into the Ings section of the river last Thursday 1/10/15. The bream will be able to spawn next year and the dace the year after.

Illegal Fishing

If anyone wishes to report any form of illegal fishing please phone 0800 80 70 60 which is the Environment Agency line.

How is it Fishing

This is the place to find out how the river is fishing.

 

Collingham

Plenty of chub and grayling. Some big perch also along with dace.

Wetherby

 Plenty of barbel on the town stretch with some also showing at the sewage works. Two very large bream also caught on the sewage works stretch. Plenty of chub up to 8 oz all down the Grange Park and sewage works stretch. Some lovely perch to over 2lb regularly coming out as well as lots of smaller species.

The Ings is producing lots of small shoal fish but isn't being fished hard at the moment.
