River Fishing in Yorkshire

Fishing Breaks offers the widest selection of the very best chalk stream brown trout dry fly and nymph fishing in the county of East Yorkshire.

The chalk Wolds of East Yorkshire are an important source of highly prized spring-fed rivers and streams. These watercourses make up a river system that forms the most northerly chalk rivers in Europe.

Across in West Yorkshire the chalkstreams give way to the rivers more traditionally associated with this region including the River Calder which flows off the Pennines.

Fishing advice and flies

In broad terms the fishing season runs from April to September. The hawthorn hatch, for which the Yorkshire streams are famous, takes place in late April/early May. It is worth noting that there is no mayfly hatch. There are no easy pickings in the second half of the season, but small flies, delicately fished are the secret weapons.

Top Yorkshire Flies:

April/May
Black Gnat (Size 16-18)
Hawthorn (12-14)
Griffiths Gnat (16-20)

June/July
Blue Winged Olive (16-20)
Kite’s Imperial (14-16)
Daddy Long Legs (12)

August/September
Elk Hair Caddis (14)
Midges (16-20)
F Fly (16-18)

Bead-head nymphs, Peeping Caddis and Shrimps in a variety of sizes are the best sub-surface patterns. Weighted nymphs for grayling are essential.

Recommended outfit: 8.5ft rod, of 4-5wt, with floating line and tippet to 2lb/8x. Waders not required at Mulberry Whin but can be useful.
