Ilkley Angling Association
The Ilkley Angling Association is a small friendly fishing club. It provides excellent game and coarse fishing on the River Wharfe at Ilkley and ponds at Ben Rhydding. The fly fishing at Ilkley for wild Brown Trout and Grayling is outstanding. Inexpensive season memberships and day fishing permits are available.
In its 'Top Game Fisheries 2017' booklet 'Trout & Salmon' magazine listed the River Wharfe at llkley as one of the finest trout fishing destinations in the UK. And it said that 'The River Wharfe is possibly Yorkshire's finest angling river'
The river at Ilkley is within a 5-10 minute walk of Ilkley town centre and train station and yet it is a beautiful place to fish with interesting flora and fauna to be seen including Kingfishers, Heron, Dabchick, Goosander, many ducks and even an occasional Otter.
If you would like information about the Association, please send an e-mail via 'Contact Us' with your contact details and we will get back to you as soon as possible
To report any emergencies concerning polution or misuse of club waters please contact the club bailiff
The Trout season starts on 25th March.
No fishing on the river until then and no maggots to be used until 16th June.
