Sutton on Derwent Left bank above weir                                       Fishing the Yorkshire Derwent page 4

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.
