Fishing rights up for grabs at Eldwick reservoir

Yorkshire Water have invited applications from angling clubs to lease the fishing rights at Eldwick reservoir for initially five years.

The reservoir has been fished for many years and naturally holds 280 Perch and has previously been stocked with Brown and Rainbow Trout. Many anglers consider the rainbow trout the hardest-fighting trout species and they are a popular target for fly fishers.

There is also an opportunity for the reservoir to be stocked with other coarse fish such as Rud or Roach.

Set in a rural idyllic location, Eldwick reservoir is nearly five acres in size and offers peace and tranquillity to all visitors.

The lease will be offered by Informal Tender, where applicants will have the opportunity to submit their best rental figure. The closing date for all applications will be the 18th November 2016.

Georgina Hurley, Land & Property Surveyor at Yorkshire Water, said: “This is a great opportunity for a local fishing club to speak to us about leasing the fishing rights for Eldwick reservoir. At Eldwick reservoir, anglers can look forward to reeling in some great catches and we hope to gets lots of interest.”
