Fishing – September 2018

With a rod licence anyone can fish from Norby weir to near Thirsk library but the rest of the river is controlled by clubs, details on the Clubs leaflet.

You need a rod fishing licence to fish for salmon, trout, freshwater fish, smelt or eel with a rod and line. It can be obtained online or from a Post Office (in the Co-operative supermarket in Thirsk Market Place).

You must always carry your rod fishing licence when you’re fishing or you could be prosecuted. You can be fined up to £2,500 for fishing without a rod fishing licence. Children under 12 don’t need a licence. Licences for children aged between 12 and 16 are free but you’ll still need to get a junior licence. You may also need permission from the landowner if you’re fishing on private land. You must follow national and local rules (byelaws) when freshwater fishing with a rod and line.

Please mention Thirsk Tourist Information when you make contact
