River Wharfe - Arthington

Brief description of fishery:

This fishery was acquired in September 2021, and offers around 1600m of mixed game and course fishing mainly for trout and grayling on a lowland section of the River Wharfe.  The river is about 40m wide, well-lined with trees in many parts and fairly slow-moving in its lower reaches.  In the upper part of the length is a good deal of streamy water offering nymphing opportunities.  The length also offers good evening dry-fly fishing in summer and opportunities to trot a worm for established grayling populations in the autumn and winter.

Open for fishing:
 25th March to the following 14th March.

Catch returns:
After fishing please complete on-line Catch Returns for this water, it’s easy and helps with fishery development. Catch return input can also be done via the members section.

Other Remarks

This fishery has some Japanese Knotweed present.  Please take especial care to clean footwear and not transport ANY plant material away from the river bank.
