York & District Amalgamation of Anglers


We have access to over thirty stretches of prime Yorkshire river fishing on the Yorkshire Ouse, Derwent, Nidd, Foss, Rye and Seven. All river species can be encountered, so whether your thing is hunting specimen barbel, trotting to roach and dace or bagging bream, there is a river stretch for you.

Our canal stretches include the Pocklington, and Selby Canals and eleven miles of fishing on the Aire and Calder Canal. Each present their own challenges, and the fishing varies throughout the season, ranging from summer tenching to winter piking.

The YDAA can offer fishing on seven stillwaters, each with its own individual character. We have gravel pits, clay pits, an old estate lake, a reservoir and a commercial-style three lake complex. Fishing is available throughout the year, and specimen fish of several species can be encountered in many of our venues.

Each of our venues has an entry in our online Gallery, with many of the pictures of the waters and their inhabitants being contributed by our members, and a factsheet for you to download that gives invaluable information on what species you may encounter and how best to catch them!!
