Barnsley & District A.A.S.

Although the South Yorkshire rivers were unfishable for years due to industrial pollution. The improvising angler from our region used to travel and fish to North Yorkshire. In the 60s and 70s. Therefore the Derwent and Ouse championships were a huge draw. The Yorkshire anglers turned to the river Trent with the big match circuit.  

Barnsley & District has fishing on the river Trent at Fiskerton for years. Although I know it’s not in Yorkshire but hundreds of anglers from our region have travelled to fish the river, Trent. Mostly looking for the match fishing. Although a few intrepid anglers were looking for the barbel. Hence Barnsleys connection with the river.

Barnsley and District have some very sensible rules. An unhooking mat is a must when fishing for barbel on this river and anyone fishing without one will be asked to leave. Also, anyone suspected of leaving litter will have their yearbooks withdrawn. Yearbooks are good value and day ticket are available from the post office shop in Fiskerton. The bailiff walks the river on a regular basis so take it home and abide by their rules.  

The Fiskerton stretch of the river is wide and big rods and strong line are needed. The Barbel here run big there are carp and catfish have been rumoured.
