Aldby Park Angling Club

Aldby Park Angling Club has managed the water on the Yorkshire Derwent for the last 28 years and is currently seeking members.

The cost for membership for Aldby Park Angling Club is reviewed annually and is based on the cost of running and leasing the fishing. The Fishing is for around 6 miles of the river mostly on both banks and if you like secluded river fishing in some fantastic picturesque surroundings then take a look at Aldby Park. here are a few snippets from their website,

[ Aldby Park Angling Club has managed angling on the Aldby Park Estate for the past 28 years.  Based at Buttercrambe Hall, which is about 10 miles east of York, we have access to around 6 miles of the banks of the Derwent from just above Scrayingham Village, to Stamford Bridge.  This includes water that was previously leased by Leeds Amalgamation of Anglers.  There is a low frequency and density of angling, which works to the mutual advantage of the members and the Aldby Park Estate, who own the fishing.   The club has been set up for pleasure angling only – there are no matches. We don’t fish intensively, maintaining a very discreet presence on the river. We supervise restocking and maintenance, carrying out bank clearing and ensuring that the water is fished only by permit-carrying members. ] [tds_council]join this club some great peaceful fishing double figure barbel big chub and some riverside parking[/tds_council]

[The river offers a variety of species and gives scope for use of different angling methods.  It’s renowned for its specimen Chub and Barbel but like most stretches of the Derwent, catching them requires a good level of skill, dedication and a measure of luck. Barbel have been caught to over 12lbs and Chub reported to over 8lbs, with a number of 7lb+ specimens also having been taken. Other species include Grayling, Bream, Roach, Perch, and Dace.  A Pike of 22lbs was taken in 2010.  If you’re interested in registering to join the club or signing up to receive information, please contact Phil Jones, Club Secretary.]

Some big fish can be had Barbel to 12 lb 10 but these are exceptional fish and with such a good length and depth of river you have to put the time in. but any Derwent barbel is a noted catch. some good chub to 8 lb 2 also carp.yes, Carp to 18 lb good sized roach 2 lb 2 perch to 3 lb Grayling to 1 lb 10 that’s a nice grayling also bream, dace, trout, sea trout, bleak, ruff, minnow. so come along and get hooked on the Derwent.

The club is very well run and it’s nice to see other River Derwent fans on the bank, there are some great pegs cut out at Buttercrambe and access is very well described for the fishing along its 6 miles at the various farms. I have caught Barbel chub roach perch and dace from the Aldby Park water . for more on the Derwent see here. Derwent
