Stamford Bridge, YO41 1, East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Approximately 4 miles in length, this peaceful fishery comprises of Stamford Bridge, Scoreby and Kexby on the right bank. The left bank of this stretch covers both the second and third fields. Day tickets are allowed for this fishery. Night fishing is allowed by prior arrangement via the Waters Secretary.

This section of water is known to be fast and shallow at the upstream end. The said area is popular for early season sport. Between the ends of the stretch, there are well-known shallow areas complemented by deep areas. The depth varies depending on the time of the year.

This venue is home to roach, dace, chub, gudgeon, perch, pike, barbel, bream, grayling and trout.

To get there, follow these directions. For the left bank, park in public car park at Stamford Bridge and walk downstream.

For the right bank Stamford Bridge and Scoreby section, take the A166 through Gate Helmsley and past the Scoreby Lane turnoff. At cottage on right, turn right down the road and follow it to the entry gates for the Water Treatment Works. There is a track on the right here which leads to the field for parking in. Go over the stile and down the field to the river. Turn upstream; the top peg is just above the viaduct. Walking downstream, Scoreby can be found through the ‘wood’, starting at the top of the ‘rough’ field above the sandbed. (Pleaste not that this is another long walk, but is well worth it).

For Kexby, take the A1079 (Hull) road, to Kexby, turn off to the right onto the “old bridge”. Park considerately here, then cross over the main road and follow the public footpath through the first field to the double stile which is the start of the fishery.

What tactics work well?

Pike respond well to either static float fished dead baits or lures.
