Fishing – November 2023
See also Wildlife
Day membership tickets are available to fish the Thirsk Angling Club stretch of Cod Beck on the right bank from Norby weir downstream to Marage Road. Get them at either Busby Stoop Filling Station (YO7 4EQ) or Topcliffe Post Office (YO7 3RL).
You will also need an Environment Agency rod licence which covers Trout, Coarse Fish & Eels to be able to fish this stretch of the Beck. It can be obtained online or from a Post Office (in the Co-operative supermarket in Thirsk Market Place).
You must always carry your rod fishing licence when you’re fishing or you could be prosecuted. You can be fined up to £2,500 for fishing without a rod fishing licence. Children under 12 don’t need a licence. Licences for children aged 13 to 16 are free but you’ll still need to get a junior licence. You may also need permission from the landowner if you’re fishing on private land. You must follow national and local rules (byelaws) when freshwater fishing with a rod and line.
