Yorkshire Salmon River

Egton EstateThe Yorkshire Esk is an understated and under publicised river. Recognised by many as one of England’s best kept secrets for salmon and sea trout, with double figure sea trout caught annually.

The river is approximately 16 miles in length with its mouth at Whitby. A classic spate river, the system relies on rain falling in the North York Moors to facilitate fish runs from the North Sea. From May/June onwards salmon and sea trout start to run in greater numbers until the end of the season. The river has many similarities to the private beats on the number 2 salmon river in England and Wales, the Wear.

Egton Estate, is located on the North East fringe of the North York Moors National Park. p-DcQt7GXO0K0yiUEPpw1TEkE1JG5_79pOb1WRYZVo4,s6mG9Ht0Ms_SHRq9CGzS_cAS2KfktWyCKyhn_Ae4hJoYorkOutstanding views, steep valleys, heather moorland, coastal fringes and woodland outcrops greet the visiting angler. The beat is seven miles inland from Whitby and enjoys approx 1.25 miles of prime double bank fishing, with some very exciting water for resident and running sea trout and salmon. The water lends itself to the fly and is often described as intimate with lots of pools, pots, runs and riffles to hold fish. A days fishing in 2015 starts from £33 to £42 plus vat.

The Yorkshire Esk Rivers Trust actively works to maintain and improve runs
of Atlantic salmon and sea trout.

    That looks lovely. What is the 5 year average for salmon/sea-trout? (I’m guessing 2014 was a poor year like most other rivers)..
