YDAA control the fishing on the right bank for over three miles. The fishery is split into three sections. In total approximately 3 miles of fishing are available. Night fishing is allowed by prior arrangement via the Waters secretary. Day tickets are available from the usual outlets.

YDAA - River Ouse - Poppleton

Species and Tactics

This section is a continuation of the Red House Fishery and again it supports most running water species, with a good head of roach and bream present. Hot spots are the ‘Pipe Hole’ and the ‘Wires’.

Ground bait feeder with worm and caster again works well, with roach preferring a maggot feeder. The pole works well for bags of roach and perch when fishing just over the marginal weed.

The fishery is divided into sections for the purpose of match bookings and differs in depths and widths, and is suitable for all methods of angling and can throw up some real surprises.


Travelling from York, take the A59 to Knaresbourgh, turn right after leaving the ring road just after the garden centre and then turn right at the Village green.

Follow the road until the parking area is reached, on the left hand side of the road just before the memorial.

There is a track to the river. This track leads into a field with a large area with a white metal gate at the end.

Access to the section, through the ‘white gate’ and walk upstream.
