Fishing & Angling

North Yorkshire Water Park has three well stocked fishing lakes only a short walk from the Water Park lake. There is a trout lake, coarse lake and predator lake which are all well stocked with a large variety of fish.

A fisheries warden is available for advice and the purchase of tickets. The fishing lodge on site provides a base with free coffee and tea making facilities for anglers, toilet facilities and a seating area. Snacks and cold drinks can be purchased along with a small selection of bait which includes, sinking and floating pellets, sweetcorn, luncheon meat and brown crumb (Ground Bait).
