This small stretch of river from the weir left bank is controlled by Boroughbridge AC and is ideal as you can park in the picnic area and fish a stone’s throw away. The fishing is from the sign near the weir down to the sign just above the road bridge, It is a short section with fast water just off the weir and is more suited to fishing in the summer months. There is no fishing on Sunday tickets from Baileys near the Crown Hotel across the road from the fish and chip shop.or from Pybus newsagents in the town.
Harrogate & claro Conservative Angling Club control this stretch of the Ure in Boroughbridge The fishing starts on the Left Bank downstream from the road bridge to the inlet of the canal at Milby about half a mile of fishing. Park across the road in the picnic area car park, there is a footpath from the bridge that runs between the river and the canal up to Milby lock gates, Please note the pegs are very overgrown and the banks are steep which makes it very treacherous especially when wet so great care is needed, The club could do with taking a good look at this and sort some of the access down to the river . That said Harrogate has some good water around Yorkshires rivers.

Traveling north on the A1 go over the motorway to the roundabout and take the first exit [its the old A1 northbound road now the A168] after only a hundred yards or so look to the right and go through the gate follow the path [it runs parallel with the road,] after a few hundred yards it turns right under the A1 bridges and park in the area provided. The fishing is 800 yards upstream and down to the marina.
