Anglers are well served too. While our own river Dee has proved variable over the past few years, there are three more rivers and 2 still water venues close by.
Rivers to fish near East Catholes include the River Lune, the River Rawthey and its two tributaries, the River Dee and the River Clough.
The migratory trout normally reach the area sometime in June, and salmon generally appear from August.
