Doncaster & District have some great water on the river Don. The club has a proud history going back to 1911 the club website points to the fact that local anglers used to travel to the Trent and North Yorkshire for their fishing But the Don is set to become the most prolific river in Yorkshire.
I’ve fished all the rivers in Yorkshire and I can’t argue with this statement, The Don certainly produces, That said the North Yorkshire rivers do have their day.
Since the weir was re-routed at crimpsall sluice the fishing on the river has certainly picked up especially the Barbel fishing.
The river does rise very quickly when it rains so be careful. Yearbooks for seniors are very good value for money or day tickets on the riverbank.

The fishing on the Don starts at Sprotbrough weir and goes right down to the weir below the second railway bridge see map
