NB – We have not visited this fishery yet, so have lifted some content straight off the Skipton Angling Association website. Please visit that website for more info 🙂
Tickets not available from the 28th February to the 24th march inclusive.
Embsay Reservoir is located above the village of Embsay, near Skipton. It is owned by Yorkshire Water, and is used to supply water to the north and west of Skipton. It is the clubs flagship venue holding large numbers of good sized trout and a great spot for Fly fishing (plenty of casting space).
The water covers almost 30 acres and is very deep due to the dam height of 24 m (79 ft). (Fishing is not permitted from the dam wall due to health and safety reasons). As with all Skipton Angling Associaitons waters there is a 2 fish limit. Species at the venue are Rainbow trout and Brown trout along side perch, which seem to have found a way in to the water (some of which are now specimen sizes).
