Birkdale Fishery

There are three lakes in total offering a maximum of 80 anglers the chance to fish in wonderful surroundings. There is convenient parking next to the top lake and the main lake. But there is a fair bit of walking if you want to reach the furthest pegs. Most of the pegs do not offer any hard standing, as such most are unsuitable for anglers with disabilities. There are no toilet facilities on site. The water is also quite exposed making it uncomfortable when the wind and rain gets up. The lakes are split up into the largest lake at about 4 acres, then a family lake and a mixed lake, the latter two being smaller than the main lake. The depths do vary with the deepest water dropping down to over 10 ft. The water is open the whole year round, but the deeper pegs are generally the only ones worth a cast when the weather drops colder. There are islands to fish to in each of the lakes. The water offers the chance of taking a personal best carp for most people with fish present nearing 22lbs. Specialist tactics account for the better fish, but apparently late spring and early summer, good fish are taken on floating baits such as crust or chum mixers. Other fish stocked include tench, which can generally be found next to a feature such as reeds or marginal shelves, worm and flavoured corn tends to get the better fish, but they will fall to the maggot and caster approach. There is also a good stock of roach and bream that can make up some good summer bags. Rudd are also present, which appear to feed well regardless of the temperatures. There are also barbel and trout present. Please phone for more info.

Brickyard Farm Lakes

Brickyard Farm Lakes is a well established Coarse Fishery where visitors can simply sit and enjoy the tranquillity of its three lakes or fish them at very reasonable cost. Old Lake (or Amotherby Pond if your map is old enough) is more than one hundred years old and contains a variety of coarse fish. Bream range from 5oz skimmers to very healthy 3+ ponders. Chasing the excellent head of both roach and rudd can be seen quite respectable sized perch; the heaviest caught to date weighed over 4 pounds. Abbie Pond was excavated in the mid 1990′s and has matured well.. While the upper island yearly provides residence for a breading pair of geese the water has a mixed selection of silver fish, The dominant species here is the carp and the pond boast a good selection of both mirror and common carp. Patience can reward the enthusiast with leather carp which although quite young are topping the pound and a half mark. After a very muggy winter the late 2013 spring has seen all three varieties boosted with the start of a re-stocking program. To keep things interesting a good number of 3lb plus fish have been introduced and these can be seen patrolling the margins. Jacob’s Cut is the newest lake being constructed for the millennium only completed in the spring of 2001. It too has benefited from the restocking program and has had its head of roach and rudd augmented with tench and crucian carp. Extensive re-landscaping of Jacobs has made it more open rendering it more accessible to both float and pole. In 2004 residents only matches were introduced giving pleasure to both regular and occasional visitors. Matches run on alternate Saturday mornings starting around mid March and continuing through to late September. The Draw for each match is a 8:00 am giving a 9:00 am start and lasts for 5 hours. In early and late season the draw and duration may vary depending on the weather. 2013 has seen a big change of direction with every second match being held on Abbie and is expanded into an Open Match with pre-booked day tickets welcome.

Cornhill Farm Pond

This a relatively new fishery dug out of farmland by a nice couple that have put a lot of effort into creating a lovely peaceful fishery. There is a good stocking policy over the 3 ponds and it has been designed to offer year round sport. Thought has gone into providing an easily accessible fishery for all. The banks are very flat, although some additional hard standing would help in some areas. Anglers with disabilities are allowed to drive their cars to behind the pegs. All the 3 lakes have a marginal shelf and maturing beds of either reeds or rushes at either side of the pegs. All of the waters range from between 4 and 6 foot in depth. The water as expected does hold good colour at most times of the year, assisting with presentation. The first pond that you will see on entering the car park is probably the largest of the 3 at an acre and a half. It has a number of islands that make good targets for the feeder or bomb. Adjacent is the next water named Pond 2, of a similar size to the first the water also has a couple of islands to target. In terms of fish size this pool does tend to have the larger of the stocked fish into it. The bottom end of this lake can offer sheltered fishing from the wind when it does get up. The final water known as Pond 3, it is the smallest at about half an acre, and it is stocked slightly different to the other two, with it featuring perch and gudgeon. Please phone for more info.

Premier Fishing, Selby 3 Lakes

Over the past few years,the Selby 3 Lakes Complex has gone through a few changes. Most people will remember Selby as the north`s premier day ticket fishery fished by some of the biggest names in carp fishing and once produced the 40lb mirror known as Lucy. Since then the lakes have been split into 2 fisheries. The day ticket lake is now under the control of Roger Hind and will stay as a day ticket lake. The lake has had two separate stockings of fish since roger took control (mainly doubles) and will no doubt receive more as time goes on. The lake itself is five acres and up to 18ft deep. The fish go from upper singles to upper twenties with plenty of doubles around the 15lb to 19lb weight. The lake contains lots of pike and perch with the pike going to around 26lb with loads of doubles / singles. See predator page for more info. The coarse fishing is excellent as the lake is full of roach / skimmers / large bream which respond to usual the coarse/match tactics. The Selby Syndicate consists of lakes 2 and 3 which are joined together via cut-through and are a total of 8 acres in size. The syndicate holds carp to 35lb (Clarence) and the lake has also been going through a stocking program to ensure the fisheries future. These lakes are in some of the most peaceful and picturesque surroundings you could wish for. The tree lined lakes have nineteen superb swims which were constructed for the syndicate and each one is full of features to fish to such as islands, Pads, Bars, overhangs and margins.

Raygill Lakes

We are primarily a fishery, boasting 4 beautiful well-stocked lakes full of Trout, Coarse and Pike Fish. Raygill Lakes is a very hidden almost forgotten part of the world. Visitors comment on its beauty and marvel at the fact that we are only a few miles from “civilisation” (The famous market town of Skipton & Bronte Country – Haworth, Oxenhope – are as little as 5 miles away). Raygill is peaceful, tranquil and very very beautiful. Throughout the entire village there is NO mains water, NO mains gas supply and VERY LIMITED mobile phone signal. As a small family run business, we are always looking for ways to diversify and think Raygill would be a great Yorkshire location for film and TV companies. We have lots of car parking space, cafe, toilets, and some of the most scenic views in Yorkshire, all at your disposal. The lakes are spectacular and the history is unbelievable. Raygill is tucked away in the small picturesque village of Lothersdale, We are signposted from 3 miles away in each direction by brown tourist information signs.

It is a deep water with 14 ft nearest one of the 2 islands. Most areas offer at least 7 ft, down to 12 ft nearest the roadside. There are no facilities available and some of the pegs can be a substantial walk from the parking areas. There is disabled access to some of the pegs, but many of the furthest pegs are not suitable for anglers with disabilities. The water is run very well by the Ripon Piscatorial Association. There are two islands within the water and tend to be targeted by the carp anglers who tend to be in the majority on this water. The carp present run to over 32lb and specimen tactics with boilies account for the majority of the fish caught. The Ripon Angling Centre is the place to go to find out which baits are taking the most fish. There are a number of big bream present to 8lb, which tend to upset the carp anglers by taking their carefully presented boilie baits. There are also good tench present that run to 7lb 8oz and as with most tench show better first and last thing to worm and corn fished next to the reed beds. There are a handful of chub in the water that tend to show up in and amongst the shoal of roach and perch. The latter reach a little over 2lbs in weight whilst the chub are a little larger at 3lb.
