RIVER NIDD, COWTHORPE, NORTH YORKSHIRE

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH: NORTH -

THIS pop­u­lar stretch of the Nidd has seen some ex­cel­lent catches of chub and bar­bel be­ing made in re­cent weeks. Mag­got, hemp and caster are the best baits if the wa­ter level is low, and fish­ing these on both the float and feeder can pro­duce.

This stretch of­fers a huge va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent wa­ter to fish, from fast glides to deep, swirling pools. Take time try­ing to lo­cate the fish be­fore you start, and don’t be in a rush to cast out.

Feed a steady trickle of bait to get the fish com­pet­ing be­fore cast­ing a bunch of mag­gots or cast­ers into the swim.

There are also some dace, roach and grayling in this stretch along­side a wide range of other species to keep you busy while you wait for the big fish to feed.
