Burn Road Pond

Fishery Information

Situated on the road to the village of Burn, near Selby, Burn Road Pond is a small fishery that covers less than an acre of water. This lake is quite shallow and has a depth of up to 6 feet. During summer, patches of margin lilies can be found on site.

This lake boasts comfortable and easily accessed swims. There are a good number of solid platforms to fish from.

Burn Road Pond is home to beautiful pike into double figures, roach, bream, perch and tench.

To get there, follow these directions. From York, take the A19 towards Selby. At the roundabout at Barlby, take the A63 and carry straight on at the next roundabout. Over the River Ouse and at next roundabout, take the first left on to the A1041. The turn for Burn Road is just over a mile down the A1041 on the right hand side, and the gate for the pond itself is on the right hand side, a 100m further on. There is parking for six or so cars in the car park. Please close the gate after arriving and when leaving the pond.

What size do the fish go to?

Pike go into double figures.

What tactics work well?

Because this water is so shallow, a waggler rod or pole works well for catching majority of the species. Maggot and caster work well for catching roach. Bream and tench can be had on maggot, caster, corn and worm, but respond well to moderate groundbaiting.

What facilities are on site?

There is parking for six or so cars in the car park.

Is parking available?

Parking is available on site.
