I'm going up to Claxton near York in two weeks time.
Is there any where I should not miss dropping a line in while I am in the area?

I have heard that there used to be a fishery at the Claxton Brickworks, any info on that would be appreciated too.

Thanks
Steve

Steve,

Give Stan a ring/visit at Elvington Lake espaecially if you can get there during the week as I am told by the man himself that it is fishing it's head off at the moment.

Dave,
I've just visited the site, it looks great.
Are the times correct, it says fishing is between 9pm - 8am?

Hi Steve,

For silver fish the good old maggot will win hands down, same for the Tench.
The Carp are showing on Boilies and Luncheon Meat but for upto date info give Stan a ring but be prepared for a long call [:)]
Tell him you're a Maggotdrowner and he'll tell all

Have fun and let us know how you get on,

Cheers, Dave

went to elvington last month for a weeks stay.
the place fished well,caught carp upto 12lbs on the method with sweetcorn,also had success with tiger nut but think things maybe slowing down now?.there are also some specimen bream and tench in the lake aswell,fishing near the lillies (house side)produced some fish,although the other side seemed better for me.

good luck!!

I live in York so heres a couple for you to try...

Birktree Farm at Terrington, 3 lakes in total, lovely small venue out on the A64 towards Malton, take the turn off for Castle Howard and then follow the signs for Terrington, the venue is located behind the shops on the main street follow the farm track...
Good carp sport not massive fish but plenty of em, also the roach sport can be tremendous fish to a pound and a half...

Poole Bridge Farm (Known locally as Fletchers) 4 lakes in total...
From York follow A19 towards Selby, at Crockey Hill about 1 mile from the McArthur Glen Shopping Centre, turn left towards Wheldrake for about 2 miles, the road narrows and goes over a hump back bridge sort of thing you want to be left on the farm track there...
I would head for the coarse lake, some real animal carp in there rumoured over 30lb, good roach, rudd, tench, crucians and chub...
The small roach and rudd can be a bit tiresome at times, but you never know whats coming next...

Hope this helps

What can I say!

I love Yorkshire. A bit dramatic I know but what stunning fishing venues. Yes the rivers are rising at present (didn't stop me trying though) but the lakes and ponds, I've never seen so many in one area in my life.

Weldrake just south east of York has 4 different venues that I found, Fletchers was brill, very well kept, the oldest pond is 38 years old!

I think my award has to go to Barlow common the nature reserve, I thought it was fantastic.

Thanks for the advice folks, hopefully one day I can return the favour[:)].
