Sutton on Derwent Left bank above weir Page 3
Fishing the Yorkshire Derwent part 3: This stretch of the Yorkshire Derwent is an excellent winter roach fishery the roach in the Derwent congregate here in the deep water above the weir at Sutton on Derwent during the winter months. For as long as I can remember this has always been my favourite winter place to fish. In my opinion, the roach fishing in the middle to lower part of the river has improved during the last 3 or 4 years. I have had fish over a pound at Howsham and above and below at Buttercrambe and below Stamford Bridge.
A lot of the lower Yorkshire Derwent roach find themselves here in the warmer deep water and some good fishing can be had. This stretch is about one and a half mile from the weir upstream left bank to the limit sign above the water treatment works on the opposite bank and near to st Lois farm, It is jointly held by York & District AA and Leeds Amalgamation. The car park is right next to the river just before the bridge in Sutton heading towards Elvington. Indeed you can park your car and fish from there if there are spaces available. I prefer to walk the short distance above the bridge and fish there. Day Tickets can be obtained from the Village Store near the Grey Horse pub on the main road in Elvington at £ 6 per day are good value for money.

The Breighton Ferry at Breighton
The country pub the Breighton Ferry has water on the left bank of the Yorkshire Derwent The owner does let people fish the river but he also has horses and sheep on the riverbank and has had some trouble with certain anglers who are not used to our way of fishing and spoil it by leaving litter on the riverbank, he won’t let just anyone fish here now. He is quite rightly concerned about his animals and does not want vet bills. But if you are a decent river angler like most of us are I’m sure the owner will let you fish, Tell the owner you are a responsible angler and have read this on Yorkshire River Angler and know the rules I’m sure that he will let you wet a line. This behaviour of some anglers is unacceptable and we need to pave the way ahead and prove to the landowners we are Responsible Anglers and educate anglers who are not used to our ways of fishing and rid them off our rivers.
