Hi Gary,

The rivers are closed from the end of March so don't leave it too late.
The Ouse fishes well at Nun Monkton and also at Niddmouth and sometimes at the first few pegs of the Widdington Manor stretch. All Leeds ASA waters. But why wait.

If you can get him to take you to Pool on the Wharfe (up Otley Road, down Pool Bank to the petrol station at Pool in Wharfedale) you will find that once the water level starts to drop, the Grayling will be feeding like mad. There have been some good catches coming out lately.
Day tickets are available still from the petrol station and are only a couple of pounds. Take plenty of maggots with you and feed steadily.

There is also the chance of a bonus Chub especially if you go up to the Paper Mill stretch or just downstream from the bridge.

Good luck, Dave
