Aire & Calder Canal


Bridge Lane, Rawcliffe Bridge, DN14 8, East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom

The York & District Amalgamation of Anglers share fishing on the Aire & Calder Canal with a number of other clubs, all under the control of the Boothferry Aire and Calder Joint Canal Committee.

The canal is around 30 metres wide and has an average depth of 12 feet in the main boat channel. It is home to roach, skimmers, trout, eel, carp, chub, rudd and tench. Large bags of roach and skimmers to over 30 lbs are not uncommon.

What size do the fish go to?

We couldn’t find any information about the size of fish present in this fishery.

What tactics work well?

Fish close-in where the water is shallowest, using pole, waggler or feeder, with pinkies, squatts, maggots, caster or hemp on the hook over a groundbaited area. Swims around moored boats reportedly work well, too.
