We are pleased to announce that night fishing is also acceptable under the government covid-19 guidelines. Before fishing please check availability by phoning Terry Duncalf on 07840 947435 for Shipton and James Lynch on 0795 7663697 for Staveley.

We are pleased to announce that from 11 Jan 2020 BCAA has a new agent selling BCAA memberships, and keys for locked fisheries. This new agent is:
Calder Angling Supplies, 143 Bradford Rd, Brighouse HD6 4AD Tel: 01484 711063 Website: www.calderangling.co.uk
Anglers please note that an otter fence has now been erected at this fishery. ALL ANGLERS MUST ALWAYS CLOSE AND LOCK THE GATE AFTER ENTRY.  If any member is found to have left the gate open, they will be asked to account for their actions to the General Committee, and may have their membership withdrawn.

Bradford City Angling Association
Don’t let the name confuse you. Bradford City Angling Association does have fishing a short bus ride from the centre of Bradford in Yorkshire. But a quick look at Our Fisheries will show you just how many other fishing waters we have, scattered throughout the Yorkshire Dales.

Is your interest in catching a 20lb carp from the Association’s own lakes? Is it Match fishing or trying to outwit the trout on one of our fly-only river beats?

You might even try for a salmon or sea trout on our own stretch of the River Ribble. Whatever you want, we have fishing for you.

Are you planning a visit to Yorkshire, or are you a genuine ‘Tyke’ who normally fishes day-ticket waters?

Whichever, why not Join Online or contact us for information and details about the Club? If you’d rather not buy on-line, use the Application Form

Membership costs not much more than you might pay for just a couple of days’ fishing on a typical trout or coarse fishery but gives you access to all our waters for a full 12 months (subject to the close season).

We also have Guest Tickets, for members to take a friend to try a fishery or two.

We have a thriving Fly-Fishing Section, which runs an Open Day at the waterside for anglers new to using the fly.

Regular working parties work to keep our Waters in tip-top order.
