Rogers Pond


Boroughbridge Road, Ripon, North Yorkshire HG4 1, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Rogers Pond is between the River Ure and Ripon‘s racecourse. It is incredibly peaceful and situated such that there is almost always some wave present, which makes fishing easier. It is never too crowded because there is a strict policy on the number of people who can fish at any given time, and the purchase of the tickets has to be made in advance.

The single body of water spans 2 acres and has depths that average 6 feet. However, a couple of spots on the bank closest to the parking area drop down to 9 feet and 8 feet, respectively. There is a little less than 7 feet of water in the remote bays. The young tench find the weed to be an ideal food source. There is a healthy population of bream in addition to thousands of skimmers.

Due to the river’s proximity, a significant number of eels live in the water. There is also some little chub present, but not very many of them. A few perch, roach, rudd, carp, and crucians round out the list of other potential inhabitants. It is natural water, which does not significantly help anglers with disabilities.

What size do the fish go to?

Tench can go to 5lb, but with a promise of going much larger. Bream can go to 7lb, with an average of 3lb. Skimmers to 8oz. Eels up to 5lb. Small chub at just over a 1lb. Perch run to 3lb, but average 6oz. Roach and Rudd go to 5 oz average. Carp present can go to 17lb

What tactics work well?

Usual coarse fishing tactics but you need large baits to catch the carp.
